Team story

[p]Biking and hiking over the 3 highest peaks of the Sierra Nevada, travelling over 150km off road and ascending to 3479m in 72 hours.[/p][p]Update 18/10/21: We have done it! After a "refreshing" night in a bivvy (it got down to minus 5 overnight), this morning we hit the summits on foot before a stunning and very twisty 2678m cycle descent back to Granada. Top speed was 65km/hr! Just enough time for celebratory cerveza...[/p][p]Update 17/10/21: Day Two saw us cycle a further 24.81km, this time with 1636m of climbing! We've reached the lakes on the Sierra Nevada plateau ready for our summit hike ascents, and pitched our bivvy nearby. With the forecast for -1 degrees overnight, it really will be a night under the stars![/p][p]Update 16/10/21: Day One complete: the team have arrived at the village of Capiliera after cycling 75.4km and ascending 1825mm. The do[img][/img]wnhill climbing with bikes was interesting! The weather has been warm and sunny so sadly our team t-shirts look like they need to be in a Daz commercial...[/p][p]Update 08/10/21: Thank you to everyone who has sponsored us so far. Your support has inspired us to increase our target to give 5 vulnerable children a life-changing opportunity![/p][p]The Youth Adventure Trust has been through a tough time over the last 18 months, but not as tough as that experienced by the young people they support. Staff have been working hard to engage with young people who feel isolated and alone in an environment that none of us have experienced before. In this situation, we all need resilience and mental toughness and that is exactly what the Youth Adventure Trust helps them to develop.[/p][p]We're taking on this 3 day challenge to raise much needed funds to ensure that as many young people as possible are given the tools and skills that they need to face an uncertain future and go on to make the most of their lives.[/p][p]Please support us in this slightly ridiculous undertaking, your help would be really appreciated...[/p][p]Tom: "I’ve been involved with the Youth Adventure Trust since 2010, fund raising, as a trustee and occasionally volunteering. I believe strongly in the values the charity embodies. It reaches out to disadvantaged children who don’t have the opportunities in life I’ve been privileged to enjoy. It teaches the kids about personal responsibility, growth and working with others. It does this by challenging them, taking them out of their comfort zone and helping them to learn about themselves. It’s also all about having fun and adventures. Which is why cycling and hiking across the highest peaks of Iberia seems a perfect fund-raising challenge."[/p]
