After 650 miles, the team arrived in beautiful sunshine into Cheltenham on Tuesday afternoon. Wonderful weather for spectators but gruelling for the team of novice riders, none of whom had any distance cycling experience before taking on this challenge to raise awareness and funds for Huntingdons Disease.
Pictured are Chris Davis, one of the team and his father, Geoff, Chairman of Helipebs Controls, one of the sponsors of this daunting event. Also pictured at the Cheltenham relay station, another of the riders enjoys some rest time and a chance to catch up with friends and family, along with one of the support team, all of whom have given their time for this challenge.
As at Wednesday morning, the team has now passed through Taunton, en route to Okehampton and then into Cornwall, before the anticipated finish at Land’s End in the early hours of Thursday morning.
The activity takes place during HD Awareness Month which runs throughout May (https://www.hda.org.uk/get-involved/awareness-month-may-2019)
