I have potentially found the latest fundraising event to be added to our calendar, the Cycle the World 24 hour Challenge at Knockhill Race Course. I say potential as I’ve yet to convince the majority of the boys to take part with me!
The event involves cycling as many laps as you can in a 24 hour period, from 10am Friday 28th August to 10am Saturday 25th August 2015. This event can be done solo for the ultimate challenge or as part of a team of 2-6 riders. Only one rider from each team is permitted on the track at any one time.
I had spotted this last year and didn’t get a response, but to be fair I only stumbled across it 2 weeks before the event. So far we have a team of three riders, Gilly, Stevie Potter and myself. Ally Menzies is a maybe, he’s a maths teacher so needs to see if he can get the time off work and Stevie Haining will just’ve started his probationary year as a Primary School Teacher so that rules him out.
Davie Mullin declined my offer, replying with the following:
Nah, the 24hr thing sounds a bit dull TBH.
He referred to going round and round in circles on a race track. Now take a look at the photos below and tell me if they look like a person who isn’t enjoying themselves?
Yip that is Davie Mullin, in Dubai cycling round and round the F1 track, with a smile on his face!
As I mentioned earlier we currently have a team of 3 riders and hopefully will manage to get more on board but failing that, and if people pull out, I may look into doing this as a solo challenge.
