Pedalling Squares:  11 – 19 June 2016 Calais to Gibraltar

Hi, thanks for visiting our page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor the team and donations will be quickly processed and passed to ZCT.

We set off from Calais on the 11th June to take on the unique trans European 2,926 mile non-stop ultra-cycling event that travels through 7 countries (France, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Italy, Spain, Gibraltar).

It combines human endeavour, physical endurance, mental strength, teamwork, problem solving, strategy, people and crisis management. 

Together as a team we aim to break the current Record of 8days, 20hrs, 20min, 53 sec set by the amazing RAF team in 2015.

And of course we aim to raise significant sponsorship for Zurich Community Trust.

We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations. 

Jase, Joe, Francis, Philip - Team Pedalling Squares
