The Big Bike Challenge 2017

And so it begins, this years challenge is longer, more challenging and more exciting than ever.  We are completing 1000 miles on the road and each depot is taking part in The Big Exercise Bike Challenge, hoping to match the miles on the road, all for our nominated charity of the year, FareShare.

Its been a challenge to organise but the 1st riders are resting, ready to kick off at 6.00am tomorrow so we wish them luck.

We have 6000 bottle of water donated, I don’t think we’ll get through them all!

A massive thanks again to Salford Van hire who have supported us in all our challenges and have done again by providing mini buses to get our riders back to their start points.

Also thank you again to Torien, who have again donated a bike to the challenge to allow those who don’t have a bike take part.

We’ll blog at the end of each day on how we have been getting on not just out on the road but from the depots as well.

We are currently at £4,900 on our justgiving page so please donate if you can to help this brilliant cause.
