Superhero's Ride for Charity
A TEAM of superhero cyclists have smashed their £25,000 fundraising target ahead of their epic journey from Bognor to Paris next month.
And having raised in excess of £70,000 so far, the group will be cycling around Chichester tomorrow (Saturday) with their sights now set on raising a whopping £80,000 for the Sussex Snowdrop Trust.
The 16 friends who are taking part are all from the local area and will be cycling from the Royal Oak in Bognor, known as the Pink Pub, to Paris on June 16.
As if the near 200 miles isn’t challenging enough, the group will do it in just two days, wearing full superhero fancy dress and on bikes they have bought for a maximum of £25 each.
“We’re not going to be hanging about, we’re going to be going all out to do it in two days,” said Oli Hicklin, one of the group of friends taking part.
“We’ll all be in superhero costumes and riding on all manner of rubbish bikes like a 1970s rally shopping bike which I’ll be on, vintage tandems and ladies bikes.
“It’s really captured people’s imaginations, we’ve had so much support with businesses sponsoring our bikes and donations from as far away as Canada.”
Lewis Saab & SsangYong are one of the many companies who have supported the cause and wish the team all the best for the challenge ahead!
