Like most good ideas this was formulated over a few beers back in June 2016, over the following 6 months a plan was hatched and the Mediaocean office to office cycle challenge was born.  

The 8 cyclists taking part in this challenge (Craig Heron, Thomas Kluth, Todd Rankin, Christian Maschke, Paul Mahon, Lenny Oseni, Godwin Joseph and Michael Sugrue) have been training hard to prepare themselves both physically and mentally for this arduous event.  

We will be raising funds for the Mediaocean chosen charity, Construction Youth Trust which works with young people to help them access training and employment. 
Please support them by donating to this page. 

Event details

Mediaocean London to Düsseldorf cycle challenge.

This is a very difficult cycling challenge, the 8 cyclists will spend over 7 hours in the saddle each of the 4 days, will ride through 5 countries and cover approximately 355 miles.

The route itinerary:
Day 1 London to Dover 84 miles and 6,500 ft elevation.  Ferry to Calais then 3 miles to Hotel.
Day 2 Calais to Aardenburg 84 miles and 830ft elevation.
Day 3 Aardenburg to Retie 96 miles and 1,140ft elevation.
Day 4 Retie to Dusseldorf 86 miles and 1,753ft elevation.

Adding to the challenge 
The challenge will be made more difficult as each of the 8 riders will be responsible for carrying their own kit, clothing and spares, and will be responsible for their own repairs en-route.

Rewards for completing this challenge? 

  • A sense of satisfaction.
  • Raise funds for a great charity.
  • Some good memories and great photographs
  • Some well deserved beers when we arrive in Dusseldorf.
Which brings us full circle to where the challenge was first ideal opportunity to discuss and formulate our next this space!!
