Team story

<p>Hi, thanks for visiting our page.</p> <p>We are still wondering why we decided that it would be a good idea to cycle almost 2500kms from the Pennines in Lancashire to the Apennines in Abruzzo, Italy but here we are! We chose the cystic fibrosis trust as we have a connection with a little girl called Sophie who has cystic fibrosis.</p> <p>The route itself will first take us to Hull and then a ferry to Rotterdam where we follow the Rhine all the way to Switzerland, then over the Alps, through Italy via Tuscany, and then over the Apennines via Assisi and L'Aquila to Abruzzo....simples!</p> <p>Whilst not being daft enought to join us on our bike ride many of our friends have decided to help with the fundraising through other means. Events have included a World Cup Sweepstake and even a couple of guys who have decided to RUN up and down Mount Snowdon!&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.</p>
