We are a group of sixth formers who decided that we wanted to make a difference. We are lucky, we live in a world where we can "talk to people " who may have influence. Whilst planning our campaign we have been overwhelmed by the support we have received from people from all walks of life. It has been exciting for us all to come together to show support for a special, tiny minority (our injured soliders) who have sacrificed so much for us. It is clear that whether you are a brickie or a banker, a gardener or a gold medallist, a housewife or a household name you can join us and contribute in some way.

None of us had done much cycling before now and we are all looking forward to the challenge. The cause will keep us going and the thought that Ben will be there at the end waiting for us.

We would like as many people as possible to cycle with us be it for one day, two days or just a few miles. The cycle route is well documented (see The Cycle Route on our website) and a start time and place posted for each day. If you can't cycle please turn out and support us and help us to raise awareness for Ben and others like him.


  1. Best of luck with your cycle ride boys. Ben is a truly inspirational man who embodies the grit, determination and bravery of our servicemen and women. They deserve our thanks, admiration and support. We know if he could, Ben would be with you; cycling every mile - up hill and down dale
