Fundraising Cyclists Will Pass Through Lincolnshire

A cycling trio will pass through Lincolnshire on day two of their epic fundraising challenge.

On Sunday 24th July, Ben, Dean and Ollie will set off on their biggest fundraising challenge yet – cycling from Ware, Hertfordshire to Inverness, Scotland.

On day two of their ride, Monday 25th July, the three men will set off from Market Deeping and pass right through the heart of Lincolnshire.

After a lunch stop at Yarborough Leisure Centre the boys will head north again, finishing the day in Scunthorpe.

Ben said: “We just want to make a difference to our local charity and get them recognised as they are looking to grow and reach out further to help these special little children and their families create amazing memories.

 “Any help would be just wonderful. Even a pound makes a huge difference when they’re all added up.”

Over the course of their ten day ride the trio will cover over 550 miles of our amazing nation.

To make it a little more challenging the boys are planning to cycle on the highest tarmac road in the United Kingdom, the mighty Cairnwell Pass.

The Cairnwell Pass reaches its maximum altitude of 670 meters (2199 feet) above sea level and passes the Glenshee Ski Centre, Scotland’s largest ski centre.

To make their ride even harder, the trio are opting to use full suspension mountain bikes instead of lightweight road bikes. Their bikes of choice are more suited to going down mountains rather than up them.

The team are raising money for Kisses4Kids charity and the theatre fund.

The money Kisses4Kids receives goes towards weeks away for families who need valuable time away. The Theatre Fund supports children by giving them the opportunity to experience the theatre.
