Benidorm to Redditch Cycle Ride
Sponsored Bike Ride from Benidorm, Spain To The Alexandra Hospital, Redditch
On July 24th 2016 Ava’s ‘Daddy’ Richard along with 6 friends have decided to cycle from Benidorm, Spain back to The Alexandra Hospital, Redditch. The reason Benidorm was chosen was, this is where Richard was when Ava was born and was unable to make it back to The Alexandra hospital in time before Ava passed away a few hours later.
This is a massive challenge to undertake as it covers 1183.73 miles over three Countries Spain, France and the United Kingdom. The ride will take the riders from Benidorm up the East coast to Sagunt, Spain. From here we will continue up the coast to L’Ametlla De Mar. We will then head inland to Manresa before we leave Spain and head to AX-Les Themes in France, this leg of the ride will be done via passing through the Pyrenees.
From Ax-Les-Themes we start our descent from the Pyrenees into Cahors. We then head north to Caen’s passing through Limoges, Chatellerault and Le Mans before arriving into Caen to catch a ferry to Portsmouth United Kingdom.
From Portsmouth we head north on our final leg of the journey to Redditch stopping at Basingstoke before arriving into Redditch 11 days later on the 3rd August 2016.
The purpose of this ride is to raise money to help support families that suffer neonatal loss by providing memory boxes throughout the U.K. We hope to raise enough money that we are able to supply essential neonatal equipment that is unavailable through the NHS due to lack of funding.
Cost of this essential equipment can vary from a few hundred pounds to tens of thousands of pounds.
All we ask is if you can spare any sponsorship towards this great cause. We are also looking for businesses to be given the opportunity to have their business name added to the clothing of the riders as well as on our website and social media sites.
An amazing £23,000.00 was raised.
Thank you for your Support
