The Rishton to Rimbard Challenge

Have you ever seen an advert that has really stuck with you? Well the NSPCC advert of the little baby crying has really stuck with me. After so long of being so ill and unable to even really leave the house, I knew I wanted to do something that gave back and helped raised money for this amazing charity. I wanted to feel like I was actually doing something, after so long of feeling like I had been unable to do anything, therefore one crazy night a plan was formed that we (me and my cameraman, Dan) would raise money by cycling to France. Now I say this was a crazy idea as we are two of the unfittest people... oh yeah and we didn't even own bikes! 

So starting now (Oct 2011) we are going to do 6 months of training and then on March 31st 2012 we will set off on our journey from Rishton to Rimbard Manor in France... 650 miles! :S We plan on taking 9 days to complete our journey.

But if that wasn't hard enough... once we set off we aren't going to spend ANY money! We will be relying on the kindness of strangers for food and shelter... not scary at all...

We will be keeping you updated at all stages with our blog and Dan will be creating a documentary of our adventure, with clips shown on here. 

Please spend a few moments reading about our adventure so far, and please help in any way you can, whether that be a monetary contribution to help us reach our goal or simply a bed and a hot meal for the night! 

Please spread the word of our crazy adventure to anyone and everyone!!!

Nikki and Dan would like to say a big thank you to the following companys and individuals:

John and Laura Henderson at Rimbard Manor ( for kindly offering us both 4 nights accomodation free of charge in their amazing 12th Century manor house!

Blackburn Cycle and Scooter Center ( for the bike, accessories and all their help and advice they have given us, we would be lost without you!

Lyndan at DW Fitness club in Blackburn ( for kindly allowing Nikki and Dan to use the gym facilities for the 6 months of training, its certainly given them both the push they needed!

John Smith from Colne for donating two ferry crossing tickets, we wouldn't have got very far without those, not without swimming the Channel! 

Danny Millington from Spar for the cases of cherry flavoured sports drink each, to help us through this gruelling training!
