I'm the Mayor of Shrewsbury (Shropshire) and I'm raising money for my mayoral charities, one of which is The Shrewsbury Ark.
The Ark is a drop-in centre providing meals, washing facilities and advice for those on the street who in return make an effort to change their lifestyles so they can be re-homed.
Currently this service is provided 5 days a week but homelessness doesn't stop just because it is the weekend and the Ark needs funding to provide support over the weekend as well as during the week.

Event details

Shrewsbury Mayor'sTandem Cycle Challenge

Things are going well - been out practising on the tandem! We will be starting at 8.00 on Sunday morning from Stan's Cycles at the bottom of Wyle Cop. Stan's have been really helpful servicing the tandem ad providing back up and support. Good for Stan's ! Come and see us offAt my Civic Service last May, the Vicar of St. Chad's, Mark Chadwick, mentioned that both I and the Mayor's Officer, Bob Handley, are keen cyclists and offered us a tandem which was wheeled into the Church and said he was looking forward to seeing us riding it.
As a result one of the things I'm doing to raise funds is a sponsored tandem bike ride with Bob.
We will be cycling from Shrewsbury to and around Lake Vyrnwy and back. This is about 65 miles and we will be doing it on Sunday 4 October - my 65th birthday.
