Just to show that although it was good fun the TWT cycle ride was challenging!  Conditions were foggy and puddles frequent but the back-up team came armed with a teapot.

The gallant riders made the 82 miles from Cambridge to North Norfolk in one piece – and without a even puncture.

The Waterberg Trust Challenge Cycle Ride 2016

Cycling by the river

TWT Trustee Barry Burles is leading a bunch of good men and true who are endeavouring to complete a sponsored 84 mile cycle ride from Milton Park in North Cambridge to Langham in North Norfolk in a day on the 12th March 2016 in aid of The Waterberg Trust.

It is a fairly flat ride, so simply an endurance test, but they will be peddling on for about 8 hours, whatever the weather. “Most of us will be using a well used touring bike where the challenge will be to keep going all the way to the finish, still smiling!”

If you are able to sponsor them, TWT has a Justgiving page here.

Please let Barry Burles know by email b.burles@ukbfas.co.uk if you are interested in joining the ride. He has about 16 riders signed up so far. It is a good day out for couples with whoever is not riding driving to Langham to have a fun day enjoying walking and being by the sea before cheering their riding champion across the finish line.  A truck will be in support of the riders with refreshments and bicycles to swap with any punctured or broken ones.

This long distance cycle ride is on the same day as The Waterberg Trust Challenge Ride 2016 when 14 riders will be setting off across the Waterberg on horseback for six days when they expect to spend about 32 hours in the saddle and hope to cover about 200kms through the African bush.
