While it was hoped a similar feat could be achieved in 2020, COVID-19 has obviously put a stop to that. However, following the callous and devastating theft from the Fairy Bricks warehouse at the weekend the group wanted to do something to help.
So, instead of going for a one long ride together it has bee decided that each rider will do their own shorter Lockdown ride on the same day, witht he aim of covering the 1,000km distance between London and Billund - that day will be August 15th!
The four original riders, namely Huw Mullington, Ed Diment, James Pegrum and Ralph Döring, will be joined by five new cyclists, Caspar Bennedsen, Jesper Vilstrup, Joe Perez, Gary Davis, and Jonathon Glodsworthy. So, with 9 riders, that's an average of just over 100Km each to cover!
The ride is called Dash in a Day 2020 and the guys really hope you'll sponsor them to raise much-needed funds for the charity. You can sponsor them here at the Dash in a Day GoFundMe Page:
