Dan and Natasha's UK Three Peaks Cycle

Raising money for: Northern Devon Healthcare Trust Charitable Fund

Dan and Natasha's UK Three Peaks Cycle

The Challenge

Together we are climbing the UK's highest three peaks, with Dan cycling between each mountain. That's 3407 metres to climb and 417 miles to cycle, all in four days.

The Charity

We have chosen the Chemotherapy Unit Appeal, under the Northern Devon Healthcare Trust Charitable Fund, because we have seen personally the fantastic and vital work this unit does for those suffering from cancer, and how desperately it needs rebuilding. The new unit will enable comfortable treatment for 5000+ cancer patients in North Devon.

The Training

To train for this challenge, Dan has had to up his cycling game. The daily 20 mile cycle commute has become 150+ mile 12 hour stints, cycling as far away from London as he can and back again. Brief trips home to Devon mean gruelling coastal training walks, while back in London we walk from one side of the city to another - conquering meandering tourists as we would conquer a mountain.
