Long Crendon Cycling Club

Several fathers from Long Crendon village, near Oxford, set up a cycling club last year to get fit and raise for charity.  In May 2017 they undertook to ride 300 miles from their village to Paris, averaging 100 miles a day in the saddle, to raise money for two amazing causes close to their hearts: Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) and the St David’s Hospice Care who support people with life threatening illnesses and their families.  The team raised a staggering £28,500 and this has encouraged them on to take on another exciting challenge in 2018.

This May the team, which has grown in numbers, will ride from Paris to Bordeaux, starting in Paris on the 2nd May and aiming to be in Bordeaux by the 5th May, some 400 miles in just 4 days!  Once again the group will self fund the trip, meaning that every penny raised via their fundraising page, will benefit this years chosen charities.  The team will once again be supporting GOSH and St David’s Hospice but have also decided to donate to the Pink Ribbon Foundation as two members of the team and their immediate families have been touched by cancer since they rode to Paris last year.
