All Aboard for the Coast to Coast

You may remember that last year, Newcastle House's 'Wheeler Dealers' Steven Clark, Fred Napier and Kevin Graham cycled the challenging Coast to Coast route.

Here they are at the end of their ride at Tynemouth, after cycling home westwards from the starting point at Whitehaven, 140 miles away in Cumbria.

Well, this year they're poised to do it all again! Not only that they're taking a number of their colleagues with them :)

There are 8 people cycling, plus 2 support drivers. The riders are Fred Napier, Kevin Graham, Steven Clark, Norman Cooke, Bob Stevenson, Ritchie Graham, Sam Jama, and Graham (Lance) Armstrong.  Their support drivers are Rob Giles and Scott Stevenson.

The ride takes place in just under three weeks time: from May 17th to 19th. They're all raising funds for their local Marie Curie Hospice, Newcastle House's chosen charity. Everybody doing the ride has in some way been affected by cancer;  through family members or friends.

Their goal is to raise £750 and Fred has opened a Just Giving Page on behalf of everyone taking part.

Good luck guys, it's great to see you've inspired others to join you this year!

    Great to see more Newcastle colleagues are joining you this year. Here's hoping it inspires you to sign up for the Paris to Swindon ride later this year.
