One tandem, three massive hills, and 10K for accessibility

Last week 16 cyclists completed the iconic and tough Coast to Coast challenge, raising money for Attitude is Everything.  From Whitehaven to Tynemouth, the team covered over 140 miles, travelled through four counties and climbed to over 1500 feet above sea level.

Organised by Ground Control, our patron John Drape was joined by three of his colleagues, plus riders from Broadwick Live, FGH Security and Attitude is Everything and have so far raised over £8,000. You can help us reach our £10,000 target here!

In support of the challenge, visual artist Mancsy has produced a limited edition screenprint which can be bought from his website.

For a look into the team’s experiences (and a glimpse of some of the gigantic hills they battled!), check out the Storify cataloguing the event here.

We would like to thank and congratulate everyone on a fantastic achievement and also thank those who organised and supported during the ride!

Ground Control: Jon Drape, Kate Doyle, Louise Renn and Phil Gannon
