Bobs cycle challenge
I am proud to be a volunteer and a Trustee of Cheshire Buddies. The staff and volunteers have worked tirelessly to keep a number of activites going throughout the Pandemic, despite the various lockdowns and tier restrictions. One of the main annual activities is taking various groups away to a residential centre in North Yorkshire in September. The typical cost for this is £1000. So to support that, I have given myself the challenge of cycling a total of 1237 miles between November and next September.
Why 1237miles and how?
A good friend of mine is doing a virtual run from Lands End to John O Groats, (874 miles) based around various local runs he is doing. He started in October and is aimimng to finish next September. Im not a keen runner at all, but said I would join him in his virtual challenge, on my bike and as an extra, I would add the 363 miles from where I live in Nantwich to Lands End which gives me a target of 1237 miles.. We aim to do the last 10 miles to John O Groats on the real roads sometime next September.
I started in November, which has given me an average of just over 27 miles per week. So far I have been doing an 8 mile circuit around Ravensmoor, Acton and Nantwich, whenever I can. I will do longer trips as my stamina and the weather improves!
Story so far….as at 18th December. I will update this monthly, so watch this space!
I have managed 32.24 miles so far… leaving 1204.76 miles to go… which is an average of 30.12 miles per week.
