This is a charity bike ride with the funds raised going to support the Gareth Savin Trust (amongst other beneficiaries). It is all for the Richmond family!

In the meantime, you can check out the day one route here: ( and the day two route here: The first day is about 80 miles and the second about 20. Parts of the route are a bit up and down a bit. A word of warning, this is a challenging ride and we will be riding in groups so previous experience of organised rides is really needed. We aim to do two rides locally (Feb and March) to help people acclimatise if you are a little unsure.

Cautionary words over – if you are up for it, it will be great to ride with you in aid of The Heavies Foundation. Send Mick an e-mail and get onboard!
