Taking place in June 2019, ‘From Russia With Hope’, sponsored by Brisant Secure, will see a cycling team of 18 ride through 10 countries in 12 days, ending up at Hope House Children’s Hospice, the very people they are fundraising for. The total tally is 2,730 miles with 34,000 ft of climbing.
The team will be covering in excess of 280 miles each day as they cycle from St Petersburg, Russia, through Finland, into the Arctic Circle, through Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, England and Wales, before returning into England and their final destination of Hope House in Oswestry. While the amount of climbing seems meek compared to some of our previous rides, the reality is that 70% of this will take place in the last two days as the team cycle through England and Wales – anyone who has ridden the Shropshire hills will know this is a challenge in itself. As with all GM Fundraising events, every person taking part covers their own costs, so every penny raised will go directly Hope House to support their care of life-limited children and their families
