Just Ride Southend to Manchester

We made it! Our 236 mile cycle from Southend to Manchester has been completed! We are all so amazed and proud of what we have achieved.

It is now pretty clear that until you attempt something like we have just done it is really hard to realise how much planning a dedication goes into pulling a challenge like this off. So to start with we would like to say thank you…
Martin Crocombe (logistics) Chris Thorn (mapping) and Nick Alston (too many jobs to mention!)
The support crew, Nick Alston, Alan Cook, Peter Shaw, Alan Tideswell, Chris Roberts and Amber Everson who made sure they were exactly where they needed to be throughout every part of the journey.
To Southend Council Transport for lending us a minibus, Alan for his van and Nick his car!
Sue Blaylock at Simply Cycling for sorting out our welcome in Manchester and being our inspiration from the very beginning.
The Riders, who pushed their bodies to the limits, Trevor Phillips, Pete Shrimplin, John Gretton, Sandra O’Connor, Gwen Cook, Helen Banks, Mark Bryson, Jonathan Li, Dave Tideswell, Brian Barker, Matt Mills, Elric Heslop.
The Saturday Just Ride team who kept the show running and worked so hard in our absence.
Brian Barker our Chairman for pulling us all together.
To everyone who has donated to the cause and to everyone who comes to Just Ride and leaves smiling. Without ALL OF YOU we wouldn’t be here today.
