On Yer Bike!

Leaving Lower Treave this morning on the first leg of his journey is Javed Saddique. Javed, will cycle the entire route, a total of 1300 miles from Land’s End to John O’ Groats. Javed grew up in Bolton, was a keen cyclist as a youngster and is now a professional cycling instructor with CTC. This is going to be a real test of endurance with each day starting and finishing from different locations in all the towns and cities that he passes through, and he needs your help along the way.

You can get fit and raise funds for the children of Haiti this summer by participating in his ‘Ride4Haiti’. In partnership with the Cyclists’ Touring Club (CTC- the UK’s biggest cycling charity, founded in 1878, Patron HM The Queen, President Jon Snow) and Muslim Hands, an NGO working to alleviate suffering in over 40 countries since 1993.

There will be activities and fund raising taking place at each stage with all proceeds raised going to support the children of Haiti. Activities will include; group rides, a variety of bicycles for visitors to sample (tandem, adaptable bikes, tricycles, bmx, folding and more). There will be food stalls offering healthy international food and the chance for ‘cycling novices’ to learn from the CTC professionals.

Local celebrities and media will be showing their support at many of the fun days taking place in some of the major cities along the route.

Though Javed is leading the way, his ride is meant to bring communities the routes have been planned to make it easy for everyone to participate on different sections.

That’s why they’ve planned regular shorter rides so that families and new cyclists of all ages and levels of fitness can get involved.

Whether you’re a professional cyclist, an amateur or don’t even know one end of a bicycle from another- there’s a place for you on Ride4Haiti.
