A Lasting Legacy
Since the first event in 2012 over 500 people have taken part including more than 450 cyclist and 75 crew. Many of the riders hadn’t been on a bike in years and would never had imagined taking on such a challenge but having done so they have realised what is possible and that enthusiasm has brought them back year after year.
Our fantastic crew have taken on the burden of looking after 100+ riders including feeding and supporting them over the 3 days and what started off as intuitive guesswork has turned in to a well-oiled professional event.
And of course there is the fundraising; the money this event has raised for halow has been transformational. In the early days it helped keep this organisation running but subsequently it has provided the additional funding to provide a greater level of service.
Our aim was always to run for 10 years and and then to make way for something new to come in and take our place.
