We had a great time on the event although the weather was horrendous in places, and cycling over moorland in driving rain and low cloud made the challenge even tougher than it was supposed to be.
There were 20 of us who completed it; we got to see some spectacular countryside en route to Scotland over the hills, and routes that you would never normally go through. Morale kept high despite the conditions, and it was good to see some of the work that Barnardo's do.
Julie read out a few stories of some of the Barnardo's children, it really makes you think of life and what some of these young people in care and from abused backgrounds must go through. We have never experienced it, and it's great to think that we may have done a little bit to help.... so a big Thank You to all who supported. Well done!
