The Cycle Challenge: 9,945km in 3 days

The Cycle Challenge: 9,945km in 3 days

As the single sponsored event for the Peru 2013 Project we thought we would make it a hard one. We arranged to cycle the equivalent distance from Eastbourne to Cuzco, Peru. This equates to 9,945km. We are doing this distance on twelve static bikes, accumulating the distance between the 29 in our group. Each individual cycling for a total of ~12 hours over 3 days.

Cycling Rota for one day of the three.

The first two days will be completed on Thursday and Friday 11th & 12th October from 8am to 9pm in the University of Brighton Sports Centre, Eastbourne, with twelve bikes constantly running. The final day (Saturday 13th October) will be in the Eastbourne Arndale Centre between 9 and 5.30pm, with five bikes running throughout the day. Over these days we will also have a stand explaining the project and students will be running some basic physiological tests for health screening, cognitive function tests and thermal imaging of the cyclists and public if they wish.

The proceeds from this sponsored effort will go towards the volunteering aspect of the Peru 2013: Learning Through Adventure Project. Please see our first blog for more details. We would really appreciate any sponsorship received - please go to our justgiving page if you would like to sponsor.  

Keep following our posts to see how we get on with the cycling!
