Starting on 24 May in Ilfracombe the Coast to Coast (C2C) Ride for ‘Back Up’ 2012 team are cycling the Devon C2C.
Focusing on ability, not disability, the group of friends will travel from across the UK drawn together through a common desire, to try and raise money and awareness and help transform lives after spinal injury.
Following the 100+ mile largely traffic free route through spectacular scenery the ride starts in Ilfracombe and ends in Plymouth Hoe on 26 May.
The C2C Cycle Ride team includes numerous inspiring individuals hand cycling the challenging route. The vast majority of riders have recently taken up cycling following invitation to this event; indeed many had to borrow bikes to enter.
This event is designed to support hand cyclists in getting back out after injury and to provide support to enable all to finish the event.
Attitude is equally as important as ability in achieving success. Pause for a moment and consider the challenge created by cycling across the country without being able to use your legs.
If you would like to join us as a cyclist or with logistical support please contact us through the event blog www.getbackout.co.uk
