We are a group of friends who met at Bath University (many years ago!) and formed a sports club in 2010. The aim of our club is two-fold; first to keep fit (we meet weekly for training sessions) and secondly to embark on large charity fundraising projects every few years.

Event details

Cycling across water and land!

We will be traversing the calm waters (fingers crossed) on a bike powered pedalo. The water bikes will whisk us across the waters of Loch Lomond (Scotland), Lake Windermere (England) and Lake Bala (Wales). The very same bikes will then take us across Britain from lake to lake. In total we will be ‘cycling’ 15km on water and 550km on tarmac.

Check out the video!!

There are big risks – sure, but there’s an even bigger opportunity to raise awareness and funds for our chosen charities: The Ickle Pickles, The Royal Trinity Hospice and KEEN London.

The event is being held to celebrate the life of Katie Harvey, who embraced every day of her life and who held 2 charities in high regard: The Royal Trinity Hospice who cared for Katie during the last weeks of her life and enabled those days to be filled with fun and laughter with her family.   Katie’s first daughter Isobel was born premature and very sick. The incredible work of the doctors and nurses involved in her care spurred Katie to do so much charity work for the Ickle Pickles, a charity which supports neo-natal units and ambulances up and down the country.
