So what’s your endurance threshold? How long do you reckon you could keep going on a bike? What if you stripped away all the complications of riding outside? The vehicles, junctions, obstacles and weather? What if you had access to a velodrome for 24 hours? How far would you go?
There’s a golden opportunity to find out.
‘The Wallich‘ – a Welsh charity working with vulnerable and homeless people across Wales – have launched a fundraising event that offers something genuinely different, demanding and alluring; a 24 hour team cycling event at the world class Newport Velodrome. Teams of 3 or 6 will take the to the track non-stop from Midday on May 14th to May 15th. Don’t worry about comfort breaks, eating or getting a little bit of rest, the rules merely insist that at least one rider from you team be on the track at all times. So….How much can you do? And more importantly, how much could you raise? This really is a glorious opportunity to enjoy some proper track time while doing an awful lot of good…..
More details about the work of ‘The Wallich’ can be found here. Details of the event are below.
