A massive thank you and well done to four young people that have raised over £1400 for QEF by taking on a sponsored cycle ride along the Ridgeway ancient track in Wiltshire!
The story of how Liv, Ollie, Tilly and Alannah, who are all 12 year old started at break in school one day when t hey decided to do a sponsored bike ride.
None of them has ever cycled off road for any length of time and certainly not for 40 miles, but they had their minds set on it and are taking on the trek today!
They are riding from Marlborough where the Ridgeway starts to Streatley where it crosses the Thames, they are going to cycle over two days with the support of Liv’s Dad and Ollie’s Mum. Cycling off road is hard going, you can’t go quickly and the path is stoney and rutted, although they are cycling along the ridge it has some pretty big ups and downs along the way.
They wanted to raise money for QEF because as they told us: “It is a wonderful charity that helps the disabled and those with brain injuries do the things that they take for granted everyday. Ollie’s Uncle received a brain injury but sadly died, but this charity is one that is dear to her family.”
You can find out how they did and sponsor them at on their Just Giving page, which you can reach by clicking here.
