Cyclists complete 1,000-mile ride for Chorley hospice
1:00pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in Chorley
A TEAM has completed an epic 12-day bike ride and raised £20,000 for a children’s hospice.
In spite of being cycling novices, five friends were so inspired to help Chorley hospice Derian House, they pedalled heights of almost 35,000 metres.
The challenge took 13 days as they travelled from Chorley to Nice, supported by Barnoldswick-based bike component manufacturer Hope Technology.
Their trip ‘Pedal de Alps’ covered a distance of 1,018 miles.
The team consisted of former world motorcycle trials champion Dougie Lampkin, his manager Jake Miller, builder Paul Dixon, plumber James Lampkin, and Hope's progress manager Woody Hole. Visit www.pedal-de-alps.com.
