How can I take part?

Support from cyclists along the route would be most welcome.

We do reiterate that participation will be at your own risk. This is an unsupported event, and the Pirate Code will apply after the first 50 miles as we will be on a tight schedule.

Or why not set up your own parallel challenge for the Wounded Lions if you cannot join us but want to take part. See what other supporters have dreamed up.

We will be donating £1 per mile cycled, and would only ask those that join us to do the same. 100% of moneys raised will be split 50/50 between my Name'5 Doddie Foundation for MND research, and Tom's chosen Colon Cancer Charity, 40tude.
