60 Towns… 60 Days… One Aim!

On 3rd September 2010, a Round-Britain Bike Ride will commence from the port of Hull. Sea-Wheeling is a bike ride consisting of 60 towns in 60 days with one aim – to raise funds for Apostleship of the Sea’s work with seafarers. Riders will join and leave the ride as they wish, or indeed cycle the whole way, each raising sponsorship for their individual efforts. Local TV, press and radio will follow this adventure and at ports where Apostleship of the Sea (AoS) has a presence, there will be an opportunity for riders to meet visiting seafarers.

The idea for this event came from Apostleship of the Sea Trustee, David Savage, who, in November 2008, completed a sponsored bike ride for AoS, in which he rode from Liverpool to Hull, non-stop in a day! This challenge only spiked his enthusiasm and Sea Wheeling 2010 was conceived.

David himself will be completing this entire new challenge and cycling 60 towns in 60 days. He invites supporters to ‘Take the Strain – Share the Load’ and pick up the route where they can and join him in this incredible challenge! He already has a team of enthusiastic cyclists ready to go. David and the other riders are completing this tough challenge to raise funds for AoS. They are asking for help to meet their £100,000 target. You can visit the Sea-Wheeling JustGiving page at www.justgiving.com/seawheeling to donate online. David will also be blogging about his cycle experience as he goes along.
