Kicking off the fundraising with a bang is a 355 mile cycle challenge from London to Dusseldorf. Taking place next month, the 8 cyclists taking part in this challenge (Craig Heron, Thomas Kluth, Todd Rankin, Christian Maschke, Paul Mahon, Lenny Oseni, Godwin Joseph and Michael Sugrue) have been training hard to prepare themselves both physically and mentally for this arduous event.
The cyclists will spend over 7 hours in the saddle each of the 4 days, will ride through 5 countries and cover approximately 355 miles. The challenge will be made more difficult as each of the 8 riders will be responsible for carrying their own kit, clothing and spares, and will be responsible for their own repairs en-route.
