Andrew Cole and a group of friends

May 2012

Andrew Cole and a group of friends embark on a monumental 1100 mile cycle ride for Brain Tumor uk and raised £12,000!

It feels like just yesterday that we were setting off from Barcelona and heading north towards the Pyrenees, but we are home safe and sound having cycled the 1100 miles back to Stourbridge in 10 days.

The challenge was to cycle from Barcelona to Birmingham to raise money for Brain Tumour UK. Our goal was to get ourselves safely back to Birmingham (well Stourbridge)…. an ambitious (some might say stupid) 110 miles a day! Most of us were pretty new to cycling so it was nothing short of a miracle that we all made it back in one piece!

We funded the trip ourselves so every penny we raised went straight to BTUK. Other local support came from The Dudley Building Society and Bathams Brewery so a big thank you to them, all of our other sponsors and of course to everyone who showed their support throughout this challenge. Thank you for helping us smash our £10K target and for being there at the finish line to cheer us in!

This was thegreatest challenge of our lives and an amazing experience….oh and hard work as well.  We are so pleased we could hopefully help a few people in the process and are already planning the next one!!
