James Thomas and Adrian Redfern will be setting off in a week on an incredible 6,000km trans-continental expedition, taking in over 20 nations, some of the toughest mountain ranges in Europe and all in aid of Re~Cycle. On top of this, they plan to do it in just 100 days.
Ther aim is to highlight the importance of bicycles as a means to improves lives, exactly what we hope the bicycles we send to Africa will do. Make sure you keep an eye on their website for updates as they update it throughout the ride, everyone here at Re~Cycle will be watching and supporting them whole way.
If you'd like to sponsor them then please either check out their website or go straight to their JustGiving page and dig deep.
For her 27th birthday, Sarah decided to do something different. She decided to complete a heart-shaped sponsored ride in her home town of Milton Keynes in aid of Re~Cycle. You can read more about Cycle Your Heart Out on their website.
Completed on the 2nd of July, her fantastic endevour attracted 26 fellow cyclists (and one dog) and has raised a massive £220 so far, and she's still looking for donations at her JustGiving page.
However, the story doesn't end there. As well as doing her own ride, Sarah is encouraging anyone to do their own heart-shaped cycle in aid of a charity of their choice and has put together a great guide on her website here.
So, why not get involved in the project and put yourself on the map? We're all really grateful to Sarah for her donation and can't wait to see other people's efforts. If you do decide to ride in aid of Re~Cycle, make sure you get in touch.
