Volunteer for a charity bike ride with a difference

Written by Fiona August 06 2010

Does anyone have this Monday off? And are you up for a cycling adventure with an interesting twist? Certainly you’ll need an adventurous spirit to take part in a charity ride that is currently speeding its way from John O’Groats to Land’s End.

But this is no ordinary JOGLE! It might be taking place by bike but it’s happening on a seven-person Conference Bike. The CoBi UK challenge, in aid of Cancer Research UK, is seeking volunteers along the whole route to help to cycle the mad-looking seven-seated bicycle. The event takes place from August 1 to 29.

On Monday the bike reaches Edinburgh headed for Town Yetholm in the Borders. The organisers are looking for some leg power – and that’s where you could come in.

If you are up for something a bit different and fancy the exercise/ fun/challenge then check out the CoBi UK website or call Ed on 07968 775 021 or Jack on 07825 160 369. Alternatively you can offer a donation or lend a hand with the challenge. Find out how to offer a lending hand.
