As part of PTG’s #summer100 campaign to support Candlelighters our Contracts & Frameworks Manager Richard Williams and friends are cycling coast-to-coast this weekend to raise funds for the charity.
You’ll have probably heard of the Coast to Coast road cycling challenge, or perhaps the mega-hike, but what about an off-road equivalent? Taking in the hills of the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors National Parks, this 208-mile (357 km) epic is not one for the faint-hearted. The route combines parts of Wainwright’s well-established walking route and adds more indirect chapters that make the adventure accessible by bike. Having said that, with some punishingly steep gradients and technical tracks to cover, there’ll certainly be some hike-a-bike too.
From the Irish Sea in the West, across the staggeringly beautiful mountains of the Lake District, into the green, rolling valleys of the Yorkshire Dales and across the high expansive heather landscape of the North York Moors, the journey from St. Bees on the West coast to Robin Hood’s Bay on the East is a memorable one.
Many people have sponsored Richard and you can too https://candlelighters.enthuse.com/pf/richard-williams-2b285-f8106-8e515
Candlelighters support children and their families throughout Yorkshire who are affected by childhood cancer. In such unprecedented times, families across the UK are facing challenges like never before, but for families affected by childhood cancer whose lives have already been turned upside down, COVID-19 is making life more difficult than ever.
PTG has committed to pass the £100k donation mark to Candlelighters this year and is extremely grateful for any and all support.
