Sunday 16 September

After 9 days, 1,576km and 16,094m of climbing, Peter completed his Land’s End to John O’Groats  challenge on Sunday.  He has raised over £1,500 for MacMillan so far.

Peter Bentley is now over halfway between Land’s End and John O’Groats, having completed Day 5 (Haydock to Penrith).

Day 4 was tough on all the riders, very wet and windy (Ludlow to Penrith).

Monday 10 September

Club member Peter Bentley has completed day 3 of his Land’s End to John O’Groats challenge, raising money for MacMillan.  In total, Peter will cycle for 980 miles, which is approximately 60hrs in the saddle.

“I haven’t done a charity event for a while so I thought I better make it a decent challenge for a great cause.”

Peter started the ride on Saturday riding  the 170km from Land’s End to Okehampton, climbing 2600m.  Sunday’s Day 2 entailed 178 km and over 2000m of climbing from Okehampton to Bath, whilst today’s Day 3 involved riding 161 km from Bath to Ludlow across the Severn Bridge.

You can track Peter on his ride (Rider No 258), and if you want to make a donation you can go to his just giving page at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/peter-bentley2

Good luck Peter from all at Welland Valley CC!
