Transport charity Transaid has launched its biggest ever cycle challenge, Land’s End to John O’ Groats, and is throwing down the gauntlet to riders from across the industry to saddle up and take on the 972-mile journey.
The 12-day challenge will commence on 11 June 2019 and will mark Transaid’s 20th anniversary, with celebrations set to begin in September 2018 and continuing into 2019. Transaid is now inviting the transport and logistics industry to get involved, raise funds and help celebrate the milestone.
The challenge will take riders through some of the UK’s most beautiful scenery, covering the length of the British Isles; from the leafy lanes of Cornwall, through the dramatic scenery of Dartmoor, The Cotswolds, The Lake District and ending in the stunning hills and glens of the Scottish Highlands.
There are multiple options for signing up, including a single 3-day stage, the full 12-day ‘End to End’, two stages or a team relay. As a result the challenge is open cyclists of varying abilities.
Florence Bearman, Head of Fundraising at Transaid, said: “Our cycle challenges have been taking place since 2006 and continue to grow in popularity each time. The plan was always to do something special to mark our 20th anniversary, and we hope holding the event here in the UK will mean as many supporters as possible can saddle up and join us for what is going to be something really special.”
