Newquay 24 – The bike ride
Come rain (lots of it!) or shine Joe just loves Cornwall. Surfing by day and music by night, over the years this has become a pilgrimage each August for Joe and his family and friends.
Joe might not be able to make his journey this year but to keep this strong tradition going a group of us plan to cycle from Nottingham to Cornwall spending 24 hours in the saddle between 1st to 4th August. The route now planned, takes in Glastonbury and Boardmasters before arriving at his favourite surf beach at Treyarnon Bay at 1 pm on 4th August.
We would love to have more people join us on the ride so are hoping some of you might feel inspired to plan a route from your home to Treyarnon Bay, join us from Nottingham, or join us for a bit at the beginning or the end of the route. Whatever you want to do would be wonderful.
For those cycling from Nottingham, 459KM is not something to be taken lightly and initial training is proving quite challenging especially on the bottom!.
Our hope is to raise some funds to support Joe in his recovery and to use Newquay 24 to encourage others to take on a task they too might find challenging in support of Joe’s Journey.
THE CYCLE WILL START ON THE 1ST AUGUST AND FINISH ON 4TH AUGUST AT 1PM ON TREYARNON BAY, CORNWALL
