270 mile bike ride in just 27 hours – Help For Heroes inspires 4 ‘weekend’ cyclists.

Four keen ‘weekend’ cyclists  from Newmarket are taking on the challenge to push themselves beyond their limits to achieve a goal on behalf of Help for Heroes.

The popular Help For Heroes, 100 mile Dawn Raid takes place from Tedworth House to London on Sunday 8th June but the Newmarket team decided to extend this ride even further. Leaving the centre of Newmarket in Suffolk they will head South West to cycle to Tedworth House recovery centre in Tidworth, Wiltshire where they will spend a few hours with some of our soldiers before the official ride starts in the early hours of Sunday morning. The unsupported ride on the Saturday will see them cover circa 170 miles. The total riding experience is a grand total of 270 miles in just 27 hours.



The team, (Lto R) David Buist, Jake Woolf, Gareth Godfrey, Owen Wilson, have currently raised £3,922.46 for Help For Heroes.

Gareth Godfrey, Director of Godfrey and Hicks Builders says:

“We are sure that you will agree that 270 miles in a little over 24hours with no sleep is a small sacrifice to make on behalf of such a fantastic charity that supports some of the strongest and most determined people we have had the opportunity to meet. Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure.

All of this means that we are able to support wounded, sick and injured servicemen, women and veterans with the support they need and deserve.”
