About this Project

I am attempting to complete a whirlwind 3-day bike ride called the Coast - to - Coast Long Distance cycle route, with two friends, David "Armstrong" Randall and Tommy "Indurain" Eason.

We will begin by dipping our back wheels in the Irish Sea and only finish when our front wheels get a dip in the North Sea at the other side of the UK.
The gruelling journey is usually covered in 5 days but we will take it head on over the bank holiday weekend..

All our efforts to finish this event will be towards raising funds for the great projects being run by the Non-Profit Organisation: Friends of Chintsa in South Africa.. They run a number of amazing projects to help the impoverished local community. In particular, we want to try help them to raise the funds needed for their Feeding Scheme run for the school kids in the township school.

My employer, Macquarie Bank, will match all funds raised "$-for-$, Rand-for-Rand, Pound-for-Pound , Euro-for-Euro".. etc.. So your donation is effectively doubled! :)

Many thanks
