Bike Ride completed

The Toy Trust's Big Kids Bike ride from John O' Groats to Land's End and back has been completed.
Publish date:

Toy Trust chairman Robert Mann said: "I have received reports from many of the teams and it appears that we have achieved our goal of collectively cycling from John O'Groats to Lands End and back........well done.

"For many of us the weather was atrocious with Rain, Wind and Hail reported. One quote from Scotland was 'We had to Cycle Down Hills!!'

"Many riders completed their leg with most starting at 8.00ish and finishing around 5.00pm . I heard of a number of riders who would not give up and crossed their respective finish points at 8.30 in the evening after 12 hours!!!!! of cycling. All in a good cause and with terrific personal motivation.

"Best news was no serious injury for anyone. Plenty of sore Bots, a few scars for those who were using cycling shoes clipped to their bikes (If you are stationary you fall over!!! Your secret is safe) and some of the ladies complained that the guys were going too slow."



Fun Day becomes Big Kids Bike Ride

Due to a clashing of the BTHA Fun Day and the World Cup final it has been decided by the Toy Trust Committee to replace the annual Fun Day with a ‘Big Kids Bike Ride’ this year. 


Bike Ride heads for home straight

Teams of riders from Flair, PR firm Norton & Co, Treasure Trove and Leapfrog are on the road for the Big Kids Bike Ride today, taking the ride as far as Churchill near Bristol in readiness for the final leg tomorrow.
