YMCA Team join Tower to Tower Cycle Challenge

From Tower to Tower by Pedal power!

Three members of the Fylde Coast YMCA ‘Y’ Active Team are gearing up for the ride of their lives, cycling from the Eiffel Tower in Paris to Blackpool Tower to raise money for the Charity ‘Cash for Kids’.

The riders leave Paris at 7am on Sunday 23rd August with a 450 mile, six day challenge ahead of them.

The Tower to Tower challenge organised by Rock FM will raise money for ‘Cash for Kids’ a grant making charity that raises money for disabled and disadvantaged children in the Rock FM broadcast area. The Tower to Tower Challenge will raise £30,000 for ‘Cash for Kids’ to fund a project in collaboration with the Children’s Society, which will help children as young as seven years old who are living on the streets of Lancashire.

The Fylde Coast YMCA Cycle team consisting of Mike Vernon, Paul Reeves and Graham Oatridge are currently in training for the event, which is one of many recent challenges they have undertaken for charity including a swim across Lake Windermere and the Manchester to Blackpool Cycle challenge.
Mike Vernon, Fylde Coast YMCA Wyre Leisure Director said:
“We are all keen cyclists and as soon as we heard about the Tower to Tower challenge we wanted to get involved. The Cash for Kids charity is a brilliant cause and one we felt held similar principles to that of the Fylde Coast YMCA. Myself, Paul and Graham are currently in intensive training for the event and as well as extended rides we are using the YMCA leisure facilities and especially the spinning bikes!”
Adam Carlisle of the Coastal Chiropractic Clinic in St. Annes has agreed to support the Team in their challenge by providing free Chiropractic support. Adam Added;
“When I heard that Mike, Graham and Paul were volunteering themselves to ride from tower to tower I thought I would offer my services and provide them with Chiropractic care to help them with their mammoth challenge.
‘I know from my own personal experience how much Chiropractic can help with sports performance and fitness, and I aim to play a role in helping them achieve their goals and ultimately raising the funds for ‘Cash for Kids’.

The final day of the challenge will see the team complete the last leg of the journey which is a 72 mile ride form Chester to Blackpool Tower. The team will cycle down the waterfront parade of Blackpool, with the sight of the Tower spurring them to complete the 450 mile trip.
The team would like to thank everyone who has contributed so far and would like to encourage people to donate no matter how little  to help local disadvantaged children.
