Cyclists embark on Great British challenge for charity

A pair of north east cycling enthusiasts are preparing to cycle the length of Britain for charity.

PRLog - Feb. 22, 2013 - ABERDEEN, U.K. -- Friends Darren Colley and Dave Ryder aim to cycle the 960 mile journey from Lands End to John O' Groats in just thirteen days, raising funds for local disability charity Inspire in the process.

Setting off on 25th May 2013, their route will take them up the west of England and Scotland before crossing the Highlands to John O' Groats at the northern tip of the country. The pair have past experience of the gruelling expedition, having previously made the journey in 2010.  This year, the friends are raising money for Inspire, a local disability charity providing a range of more than 60 services designed to empower the life choices of children, young people and adults with learning disabilities and additional support needs in North East Scotland. The pair intend to camp each night between the stages of their tour, and will also ride laden with camping equipment and supplies, a considerable load for their journey, and will be getting people to sponsor them along the way and before the challenge.

Zoë Barbour, Fundraising and Events Officer at Inspire, tells more: “"We really appreciate the challenge that Darren and Dave are undertaking, raising funds for Inspire in the process. Darren decided to get in touch with us after finding out more about the services we provide from his partner Mandy who works in an Inspire service. We look forward to supporting both him and Dave in their challenge and are delighted they chose Inspire after finding out more about the work we do."

The charity in question, Inspire, provide a range of more than 60 services throughout Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire and Moray including 24 hour residential care, day services and respite care, and operate social enterprise Café Coast, a stylish and contemporary restaurant, based on Aberdeen’s Beach Boulevard.

The pair’s progress can be followed on Facebook by searching for Inspire PTL and the team can be sponsored at their Virgin Money Giving page http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/DNDE2E. For more information about Inspire, visit www.inspireonline.org.uk.
