Two bikes, two countries, 650 miles and only 9 days in which to do it… oh yeah and without spending any money. A challenge? Just a tad!
The Rishton to Rimbard Challenge
Have you ever seen an advert that has really stuck with you? Well the NSPCC advert of the little baby crying has really stuck with me. I knew I wanted to do something that helped raised money for this amazing charity. I wanted to feel like I was actually doing something, therefore one crazy night a plan was formed that we (me and my cameraman, Dan) would raise money by cycling to France. Now I say this was a crazy idea as we are two of the unfittest people… oh yeah and we don’t even own bikes!
So starting now we are going to do 6 months of training and then in April 2012 we will set off on our journey from Rishton to Rimbard Manor in France… 650 miles! :S We plan on taking 9 days to complete our journey.
But if that wasn’t hard enough… once we set off we aren’t going to spend ANY money! We will be relying on the kindness of strangers for food and shelter… not scary at all…
We will be keeping you updated at all stages with our blog and Dan will be creating a documentary of our adventure, with clips shown on here.
Please spend a few moments reading about our adventure so far, and please help in any way you can, whether that be a monetary contribution to help us reach our goal or simply a bed and a hot meal for the night!
Please spread the word of our crazy adventure to anyone and everyone!!!
