KDM cyclists take on Pennine challenge

4 numb bums

We are so proud that four members of KDM’s Events Crew – Garry Holford, Toby Jennings, Graeme Seaton and Craig Winsper – have cycled 179 miles over the Pennines to raise funds for Cancer Research.

Their three-day coast-to-coast ride, Hadrian’s Cycleway, took them from Ravenglass in the North West to Tynemouth in the North East, taking in landmarks such as Lanercost Priory, Birdoswald Roman Fort and Haltwistle – the geographical Centre of Britain.

And this from a team that modestly describes itself as The Four Numb Bums: “unfit and unhealthy – with no experience of distance riding”.

Speaking after the ride Garry said: “The first day was blighted by the fact that it rained from the minute we set off to the minute we completed our scheduled 75-mile leg.  Day Two was literally an uphill slog – a 50 mile climb over the Pennines – hard work on the legs. But all in all it was a great success: we sustained no punctures, mechanical mishaps or injuries, and are hugely indebted to our support crew for keeping us fed and cheering us on.”

The guys raised an impressive £3,000 through cash and online donations, and in recognition of their herculean effort, KDM is chipping-in funds to make a grand total of £5,000.

Inspired by their first victory, the Numb Bums are already envisaging their next fundraising challenge!
