Hoppers are on the move for Children in Need – Training

As previously mentioned, On the 16th November a team from JR Hopper & Co will be setting off on a sponsored bike ride from Horton-In-Ribblesdale to Hawes, a 16 mile journey, in aid of Children in Need.

As a member of the team, who has not been on a bike for ten years, I can assure you that this is no easy task. So far my training has consisted of short bike rides and the odd session on an exercise bike to get me used to being on a bike again. The first ride was excruciating, saddles are certainly not made for comfort! However, having finally mastered the art of which gear works best for different types of terrain I am starting to feel a bit more confident. Hopefully Lucozade, Mars Bars and Pudsey Bear will see me through the 16 miles!

The plan is to set off at 09.30am at Horton-In-Ribblesdale with expected arrival in Hawes between 14.30 and 15.30 (depending on the amount of breaks we need!!) If you are in the area we would love you to come along and cheer us on!! Moral support is most certainly needed!

So far we have raised just over £300. We would love to hit the £1000 mark. All money fundraised will go to Children in Need. It is possible to donate online http://www.justgiving.com/JR-Hopper-Co. Alternatively, if you wish to donate, call into one of our offices.

Wish me luck!!
