East to West Cycle Ride

In a couple of weeks' time our daughter Elizabeth and husband Tom will be attempting to cycle the 640 miles or so from the east-most to the west-most point of the British mainland - from Lowestoft on the Suffolk coast to Ardnamurchan Point in Scotland. They’re going to try to do this inside a week, without any support crew, carrying their gear and sorting out food as they go along. It will be a challenging trip but they have been putting in the miles in preparation and think they can do it.

They obviously hope to enjoy the ride but at the same time are hoping to raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust. This is a fantastic charity that does great work, providing facilities, nursing and support for young people whose needs can otherwise fall into the gap between general and paediatric care. A couple of years ago our family saw at first hand what a difference this could make when our grand-daughter needed treatment.

Liz and Tom have set up a JustGiving page and would be thrilled if their efforts inspire anyone to make a donation to this very worthwhile cause. It goes without saying that every penny raised will help to make life just a bit better for young people going through a particularly tough time.

Donations can be made at Liz and Tom's JustGiving page here.

  1. Do they have a proposed route they are travelling along ? I live in Lincolnshire and if time permits and work I would like to support them on the way.
