Our Journey

During the first lockdown of 2020, Longbridge Cycling Club made their our hypothetical journey, Around the World in 80 Days, in a bid to raise much needed cash for The Heart of England Coronavirus Resilience Fund.

22 regular members, 8 friends of Longbridge Cycling Club, !0 month old Sebastian, Zavier aged 8, and Suzie the dog set out on Monday 18th May to accumulate the 18,000 miles needed. 

Our targets were... 6750 miles per month, 1575 miles per week, or 225 miles per day.

Weekly updates were added to our Facebook Page 

With everyone's best efforts during this difficult time, the journey was completed in a mere 51 days with over £1000 raised. A huge well done to everyone who took part.
