Carter Lauren change their plans but are still cycling for City Hospice
Carter Lauren were planning to take on the North to South Cycle Challenge on the 25th – 26th of April in aid of City Hospice. However, during these unprecedented times the challenge had to be postponed. Carter Lauren and the riders fully support the decision to postpone the event until it is safe to do so in 2021.
We’re fully committed to supporting our Charity of the Year
The riders are fully committed to continue to raise money and support City Hospice as their chosen Charity of the Year. They decided to take on the “Lockdown North 2 South Virtual Challenge” riding 226 miles over 4 days. The 226 miles will be completed in line with the current Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing.
The challenge will be carried out safely and riders are following guidelines by using indoor trainers and/or riding individually.
Jon Folkes, Senior Contracts Manager Carter Lauren told us
“We had originally planned on riding on two days in April but the Coronavirus put paid to that. So considering City Hospice has no fundraising events at the moment we have decided to do it ‘lockdown’ style. All riders are doing 226 miles individually on a bike or an indoor cycle machine. It won’t be easy but if it raises funds for City hospice it will be worth it”.
Around 15 riders will start the challenge on the 22nd of May and hope to finish the 226 miles on the 25th of May. We are hoping to raise as much money and support as we can to help City Hospice of Cardiff”.
