Nic Downs and Bleddyn Rees are raising money for the Velindre NHS Trust ( )  the cancer centre for South and Mid Wales. It provides specialist cancer services for 1.5 m people.

Bleddyn has ridden from London to Paris but this will be twice the distance he has cycled before so will be a real challenge.

Nic has completed two London 2 Cannes rides but this is his first sponsored cycling challenge since 2012 so please dig deep for a very worthy cause.

Often seen out on their bikes on the scenic roads of South Wales, their winter training has gone well despite the recent weather, now it's time to get serious as this is a seriously important cause.

Any support you can give will be gratefully recieved

Thank you, Nic and Bleddyn.

West Coast Bike Ride

Highway 1 is famous for running along some of the most beautiful coastlines in the USA, leading to its designation as an All-American Road. From the seats of our bicycles, we immerse ourselves in an exhilarating cycling experience, this twisting, cliff-hugging, 600 kilometre route along the nation’s most famous
coast will take 6 days of riding to complete. Take a smile-inducing breath of fresh air first thing in the morning, sipping
your coffee, your eyes falling on the storybook landscape that’s to be the back drop of our journey. Stretch your legs. The climate and topography are perfect for fantastic biking routes that fill the pages of our days with epic climbs and
journeys through numerous attractions along the coast. The views and laid back California culture along this challenge will soothe the healthy aches and
exhaustion; get ready for an awesome ride. Come and cycle with us to the Land of Angels.
