As far as off-road endurance events go, mountain biking the Tim Woodcock coast to coast route is up there with the UK’s toughest.
That’s the challenge facing Team Triangle, a group of amateur cyclists from Halifax, who are saddling up on Wednesday to raise money for Overgate Hospice. The 200 mile route is loosely based on Wainwright’s walk, and will see the peloton travel from St Bees to Robin Hood’s bay in four days.
Each rider has his own reason for attempting the challenge, from enjoying the scenery to remembering late family members. They would like to thank friends and family members for the continued support, and Custom Telecom for sponsorship.
