Our riders did it!!
Tony, Mattie, Luke, Sunil, Tom, Jimmy, Jay, Liam and Macca all endured 47 hours of intense pressure as they rode through the night and day in a heatwave all to raise as much money as possible for Sean’s Place on the 2nd anniversary since we sadly lost Sean.
Our team left Sean’s home in Halewood at 6pm on Friday evening and arrived 15 hours later in Cardigan Bay, stopping off briefly at Bala on the way. They slept for a few small hours once they arrived at the camp site before heading off again around 2am to make it back to Liverpool in time to complete the challenge. They endured sun stroke due to the extreme heatwave and pain like no other as they faced the Welsh hills (Mach Loop was one of the worst). However, they pushed through, supported each other and made it home safely in under the 48 hour mark
Our team have trained since January for this event, taking part in gruelling hill climbs, training with elite riding clubs and long distance training all to condition and prepare themselves for this mammoth event
The riders returned back to Liverpool to celebrations with family and friends and a hero’s welcome return party. We are incredibly proud of what they have achieved personally and also for the awareness and money they raised for Sean’s Place which has now reached over £5000.
Amongst the riders were some of our amazing mentors and also some former members who have accessed Sean’s Place for support. Jay told us this before the ride..
We have so many people to thank for making this event possible and for keeping our riders safe including the below:
The Mobile Bike Mechanix- they kept our riders safe, watered, motivated and on the road the whole way through the ride, donating their time for free. They are incredible
Our support team- Sam, Mike, Joe and Paul who set up camp for the lads to sleep on arrival, provided and cooked food for the riders and kept them motivated along the route
The Black Horse Pub- They provided the celebrations on return including food, music and party pieces, they have also raised over £1000 through fundraising and events
