Loughborough’s Duncan Ross writes about Loughborough Round Table’s charity bike ride on 29th September this year:

“Continuing our support for our nominated charity, Rainbows Children’s Hospice, a small team of intrepid explorers have cycled a gruelling 142 mile route from Coast to Coast in just 2 days, from Whitehaven to Newcastle in September, jointly raising in excess of £3000 for the charity.

This unbelievable effort, across some of the highest peaks in the country, totalling almost 3500 meters of ascent was a fantastic achievment for the whole group, all of them crossing the finish line together. A well earned evening of Newcastle entertainment was had by all.

If you have not already done so and would like to contribute, please feel free to provide as much, or as little sponsorship as you can afford by clicking on the just-giving logo on the Loughborough RT website. Every penny counts -your donation will be very much appreciated.

Quote of the trip awarded to Tim at around the half-way point “Has anyone got any vaseline?””
