CHALLENGE COMPLETED – TO SEE DAILY REPORTS GO TO THE SCHEDULE TAB ABOVE.
From Wednesday 25th July to 5th August 2018, David and Carole Chapple relay cycled from Saltash, Cornwall to Edinburgh. This was with one cycling while the other acted as a support vehicle. Most days were split into three sections with Dave starting and finishing the day with Carole doing the middle. At the end of each day they attended a comedy gig where they collected for the mental health charity Mind.
Several additional challenges were faced along the way. In Leicester, their bikes were stolen from the hotel car park despite being chained directly to the car. And in Leeds their car was broken into. Thanks to amazing support following an appeal for help via social media and Radio Leicester, Rutland Cycling lent two hire bikes for the rest of the trip. The comedian Jayde Adams also set up a GoFundMe page to pay for new bikes which raised a huge amount.
The total distance covered was 732 miles.
