Le Jog Sponsored Bike Ride

They’ve done it again!

Some of our Friends will remember Liz visiting Coffee Club in October 2018 to tell us about the cycle ride she and her husband, Matt, had just completed. Always ready for a challenge, they have just taken on the massive 970 mile Le Jog ride again this September which starts at Lands End and finishes at John O’Groats, as part of the organised Deloitte Ride Across Britain. It is a truly gruesome and gruelling challenge to complete the distance in 9 days, averaging a minimum of 10 miles per hour for 10 hours a day, up and down hills and mountains with 53,000 feet of uphill climbing. There’s not even a rest day!

Even though we find ourselves questioning their sanity, we’re incredibly grateful to Liz and Matt for their fundraising. Sponsorship is still open and the link is
