Cycle Challenge raises hundreds for cancer charity

Active Northumberland's Cycle Challenge raises hundreds for cancer charity


Active Northumberland members have taken part in a charity challenge, cycling over 15,000kms and raising around £2,000 for Cancer Research UK.

Over 50 members from the Willowburn Sports Centre in Alnwick and the Swan Centre in Berwick  took part in the challenge to cycle 300 miles in 30 days.

Throughout September participants clocked up their miles by taking part in spinning classes and by using exercise bikes in the gym and then logging their distance on their MyWellness app or keiser app. 

Active Northumberland Fitness manager Michelle Gray said: 
“ This has been a brilliant challenge and a great way to build fitness while raising money for  such a good cause. Everyone played their part and reached or exceeded their target ”

There are a few whose efforts really merit a mention. Charlie Elvin and Robert Curle both cycled 1000kms each, while Regan Graham decided to run the 300 miles instead of cycling,  the equivalent to 12 marathons in the month and Mark Charlton rowed 100 miles.  

Our very own Active Northumberland staff Dave, Tina and Leon also took part in the 300 cycle challenge. 

Well done to all those involved... fantastic achievement and all for a good cause!
