Help us support the Children's Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS) who bring so much happiness to families in time of need.
In particular, we are supporting the Robin House Hospice in Balloch, please follow the links and see the great work they do.

214 Miles Just For Fun is a bike ride which will see 7 mates attempt to cycle from Inverness to Glasgow (214 miles) in a single weekend! See our BLOG for more details of the route and the riders.



The bike ride will start at Inverness Castle on the 25th of April, about 11am, where we will head off down the Sustrans cycle Route 7 and finish just 2 days later on Sunday in George Square, Glasgow.

It's heading from North to South, so it should be all downhill!

Friday night's rest will be in Newtonmore, just 58 miles down the trail.
Saturday will take us down to Killin, a further 79 miles, while Sunday will be a dash down to George Square, 77 miles away! (it might not be too much of dash, more a crawl!)

The riders are:
Ian Bone
Alan Fraser
Andrew Bone
Alex Benetatos
Paul Franks
David Ross
Steven Turbitt

None of us have ever ridden this far in so few days, and we are certainly going to be sore by the end!

Please dig deep, sponsor us online, and help a family.

Many thanks for your support.
