  • Coast To Coast Sponsored Bike Ride

  • 1

This year, the Newcastle University student’s annual Coast to Coast ride took place on the 12th and 13th March, with 55 students cycling 140 miles from Whitehaven to Tynemouth over 2 days.

There was a whole range of cycling expe-rience represented - from those who had only recently taken up cycling in order to complete the ride to some seasoned pros!

An absolutely brilliant support team included two volunteer bike mechanics (who were run off their feet all weekend!), 7 drivers and 12 volunteers who did a great job dishing out bananas (300 of them!) and keeping morale up!

The weather was perfect and all the training rides and spinning sessions paid off as everyone made it to the finish in one piece and with a smile on their face.

The participants were absolutely thrilled to raise over £3700 for Hospice Africa– as they said, it was a brilliant cause that kept them going when the going got tough!

Our sincere thanks to all the teams and to Jessie Evans, our contact there.

Cheap and Non-Addictive

Imagine a world where however bad the pain, the strongest pain killer is just paracetamol.

When Hospice Africa started in Kampala, Uganda, in September 1993 this was the reality for Bashir, aged 8. Bashir had cancer and had just had his arm amputated.
