Well this year we will be doing it for the kids at Hope House” He went on to explain how the team will be cycling from Russia, through Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France, England and into Wales in twelve gruelling days.

The team of 18 are split up into 3 teams, they start from the same point every morning, sometimes leaving at 5.45am. Team 1 sets off on their bikes while team 2 and 3 set off in the motor homes. Team 2 decamp at the point team 1 will finish and set off, team 3 decamp at the point team 2 will finish and ride to that nights stop over. teams 1 and 2 drive to the stop over, then they rinse and repeat the next day and the next etc etc until they finish in Wales at Hope House.
