Massive thanks - Meet our sponsors

The following companies have helped us get our project off the ground. They have provided sponsorship and expertise and above all have had faith in us and what we are trying to achieve. We thank them all for their generosity of spirit.

Berkeley Group were the first sponsor to commit to us and got the ball rolling. When we went to them we had nothing on the table. They kick started this campaign and we are very very grateful for their vision, a key attribute in their approach to development schemes.

WellintonTrek (a family owned company) supplied all the bikes, the spares, backup and training. They stepped in when other much larger more powerful companies shied away. Let's face it without bikes the cycle ride would not have been possible. To Peter Brooker and his staff cycling is a passion and the good news for anyone wishing to undertake their own personal challenge, or even partake in a cycling holiday, is that road bikes are now available for hire from his Sunningdale shop.

Roi Driscoll Design provided hours and hours of free webdesign. The input from Roi was very special. His work speaks for itself. Roi immediately related to what we were trying to achieve with this campaign.

provided the track suits. They were fantastic to deal with and enthusiastic about the cause. They helped us with design and worked tirelessly to get the kit to us.

Marsh & Parsons stepped in at a crucial moment with sponsorship. Thank you to Peter Rollings (Managing Director) for taking the time to listen and offering support so readily.

Fresh Foods are providing all the fresh fruit & vegetables for the 12 day cycle ride. This will be an invaluable contribution to the success of the campaign. Remarkable support from a company based in The Isle of Man.

sponsored the second batch of wrist bands as the first 2500 flew out of the door. Managing Director Paul Redden has not only provided much needed funds but has contributed time and energy to help us launch this campaign. His personal and company contribution has been irreplaceable.

came forward with a solid contribution, enabling us to oil the wheels of our campaign. Thank you for your generosity.

Hertz have provided a people carrier for the duration of the bike ride. Just what we needed as a support vehicle. Their assistance in other areas has been invaluable and we cannot thank them enough.

Thank you to James Ward and Jimmy Cranswick at Endurance Sports Nutrition who gave us a really competitive price on the electrolytes, energy bars and recovery drinks the boys will need to keep them pedalling. Their friendly and efficient sales staff provided a really personal service and it was a pleasure to deal with them.
EnduranceSportsNutrition.co.uk is a rapidly expanding division of "The Supplement Company" based in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.

Stingray RV is the market leader in Europe offering American RV's for sale or rental. Thank you to Simon Leith (Managing Director) for taking our call, offering valuable advice and expertise and agreeing so readily to help.
