Sponsored bike ride
for Cure Leukaemia
Jess, Maisie, Georgia, Mrs Morgan, Pip, Frank, Matt, and Hardy set off from a car park in North Shields on Easter Sunday morning, 27th March
to start their 174 mile bike ride along cycle route 72, coast to coast along Hadrian's Wall.
They biked 73 miles on the first day which was definitely the steepest and the hardest day, particularly as the rain and wind got really bad
towards the end of the day and everyone got soaked and freezing cold. They had biked almost the whole way across the country though (North
Shields to Carlisle), which was a great achievement!
Day 2 was better weather and easier cycling and they managed 66.4 miles, so day 3 was easy - only 38 miles and a massive Easter egg hunt at the end as
So far, they have raised nearly £4,000 for charity which is brilliant. They would like to say a massive thank you to Mrs M, Hardy and
Pip for giving up their Easter weekend, for being very supportive, extremely cheerful even in bad conditions and really good fun.
