After much planning, saving, organising, training and general stress we are very excited to announce that we are going on tour!
The current, and hopefully final, plan is to fly from the Big Smoke to the Big Apple on Monday the 27th of May 2013. From there we will spend a couple of days seeing the sights in NY before heading south on the the Adventure Cycling Associations Atlantic Coast route as far as Richmond. Here we will do as the pioneers did and head out west follow the TransAmerica Trail up until we reach the Pacific Coast in Oregon. From here we will head south once again along the aptly named Pacific Coast route. This will take us through San Francisco and finally down to our end point of LA. All in this is about 5,000 miles of riding and is needles to say our biggest challenge to date!
As a result we believe this is an excellent opportunity to try and raise funds for two very worthy courses!
The first is Motiv8, Alex’s main employer, who do some great work with young people here in our local community, and the second is CRED, who Alex will be volunteering with later in the year when she helps run a youth project out in Ethiopia. Every £ helps so please dig deep!
