Well folks, here we are in another Lockdown. The feedback we received for our lockdown challenges last year was that it gave people a goal, a reason to get up and get out to achieve a challenge. The huge success of Tour de Cornwall and positive feedback around mental health has spurred us on to new challenges. One of our supporters has suggested a virtual cycle from Lands end to John O’Groats. Well we’re up for it if you are! Its 874 miles and we reckon around 20 miles cycling a week on average throughout 2021. We’re giving you all year to achieve it and any miles you cycle will count, including our Coast and Clay cycling event this July.
So drag that rusting bike out of the garage and give it some love or you can do it on your exercise bike, spin bike, Peleton, skateboard or wheelchair, whatever, you just need to be rolling. We’re offering another spanking medal and certificate on completion and lots of encouragement and laughs in our Strava Team.
You can do this on your own or you can enter as a team. Do it anywhere, anytime. The idea being to get us all motivated to get out and get moving and of course raising some critical funds for the Hospices.
Entry fees are £25 per adult and there’s a spot of Merch on offer too! Grab yourself a Team CHC Cycling Jersey, or Supporter T-shirt to show the world you’re supporting your local Hospice. Purchase here.
Whilst this is all great fun, It would be amazing if you could find a few friends to support you, every penny counts to fund the care we provide at Mount Edgcumbe and St Julia’s Hospice and you will have helped make a huge difference in these tough times. So please remember to set up a JustGiving page when you register, a modest of goal is very achievable and feels amazing when you beat it, knowing its going to fund those last treasured moments.
All you need to do is sign up, download the free Strava App, join our Team CHC Strava Club and share your stories, photos and achievements and we’ll shout them out on our media channels.
