Three young men from Wirral, Simon Tilsley 22, Shaun Park 23 and Adam Woods 21, are undertaking an epic unsupported bike ride from London to Berlin to raise funds for Cancer Research UK and Dementia UK.
“We’ve all had family and friends affected by these awful diseases and we just want to do our bit to help” explains Simon
Adam and Simon have taken part in a number of other charity events including (in 2013) the Tower to Tower challenge, a gruelling 836 kilometre ride from Blackpool Tower to the Eiffel Tower in Paris and then (in 2014) running the London Marathon.
“We know it is going to be difficult, but we are absolutely determined to make it to Berlin for two great causes” says Shaun
The challenge commences in London on Saturday the 2nd of May 2015 and, with luck and a lot of hard work, will end in Berlin on Monday the 11th of May. The 1315 kilometre ride will be entirely unsupported which means that the lads will have to carry all of their supplies and spare parts. All of the costs of the ride are coming directly from the pockets of the three riders which means that all funds raised will go directly to the two charity causes.
