Ride to Victory 2018

I have recently signed up for the Wheels on the Western Front 2018 ride in support of ABF The Soldiers Charity. It runs from August 5th to august 10th 2018, beginning with a coach trip from Folkestone to Verdun and five days of between 50 and 82 miles cycling back.

It struck me that it would be a good opportunity too give the Hase Pino tandem an outing and offer someone who would be interested in visiting some of the sites associated with the last hundred days of the Great War but might not be able to ride a solo bike/manage the distance solo/want to do something different.

I have searched locally, but have had no positive responses. I need to point out that I am a pretty strong cyclist, but this would be very much a joint challenge! Think that fits in with your aims!

I'll be doing the ride anyway, but if you knew of anyone who might want to take part, I'd be very grateful for your help.

I am based in North Staffordshire but, within reason, can travel. There'll need to be a meet up and try out (can we put up with each other for five days? is the bike suitable?) and we'd need to do some training.

Registration is £250. That needs to be paid individually. However, the ABF have agreed that if i get a stoker we can raise sponsorship jointly. Individual sponsorship is £1500, so we'd be aiming for £3000 in total.

Thanks for your time in reading this. I hope you might be able to help. Please contact me with any questions or for more information.

Best wishes
