Northern Lights – cycle to lapland update

Message from Karen Jones, Chairperson, Northern Lights:

“The weekend was a great success, we raised in excess of £3,500 and  far exceeded the mileage, completing a massive 3,033 miles over the three days. 

A big thank you goes to all the 111 riders who took part in the event, those who rode on turbo trainers on their own bikes as well as those who took a turn on the exercise bike.  Thanks go to the riders from the local cycling clubs including Birkenhead North End, Port Sunlight Wheelers, Chester Go, PaleFish, Merseyside Triathlon, Chester Triathlon and riders from the Bike Factory as well as many other riders who volunteered their time to ensure we reached “Lapland”.  In fact we managed to ride a massive 3,033 miles over the weekend.  Special thanks go to Beth Maggs who rode an amazing 110 miles on the Sunday and Graeme Cummings who rode 102 miles on the Friday and to Gareth Powell who totaled 62 miles and Eric Blakemore who totaled 43 miles both on the exercise bike. An amazing effort by all our riders.  Thanks also go to all the volunteers who gave their time to collect money in buckets during a very cold November weekend.
