We’re giving a group of seven ambitious cyclists a boost on a 1,000 mile, ten-day ride that will take them from the UK to Barcelona. The cyclists, who met at university in Swansea, are aiming to raise an incredible £10,000 in aid of Apêl Elain, a fundraising campaign to raise money for four charities, including Wales Air Ambulance and the newly formed Leon Heart Foundation (previously Children’s Heart Unit for Wales).
After hearing about their incredible journey we decided to pledge our support and the riders are receiving a daily supply of Daioni to help keep them going as they battle through the hot summer temperatures and rugged European terrain. We’ve also provided the cyclists with team t-shirts to support their fundraising efforts.
Averaging 100 miles per day, the 1,000 mile journey began in Bristol on 18th June, with the young cyclists travelling through southern England, France and Spain, before arriving in Barcelona on 28th June.
We wish the team well on their incredible trip and we’re very pleased to offer our support with a regular dose of organic welsh milk. It should give them a well-earned boost of energy and refreshment along the way each day!
