Team Dawson tackles Hadrian’s Cycleway Challenge, raising vital funds for Transaid

In mid-September, our Hadrian’s Cycleway Challenge team squeezed into their lycra and took on a two-day 157-mile coast to coast cycling challenge across northern England in aid of Transaid.

John Fletcher, Gareth Williams and Andrew Muir took the challenge seriously, getting in as much practice as possible before the event. Andrew even got some mountain biking in while on holiday in Rhodes!

The weather was perfect and, after day one, which took the team up the beautiful Solway Firth, the guys headed east on the second, more gruelling stage, past Hadrian’s Wall.

The money raised was for Transaid’s important and invaluable work developing safe and sustainable transport in Africa where even small amounts can help save lives and make a massive difference.

The team smashed the original target and quickly went beyond the revised target of £3,000. The final total (from both on and offline donations) was a fantastic £4,000.

The team did brilliantly and described the event as a great challenge, well organised, and fun. They especially enjoyed the marvellous camaraderie.

Such was the fantastic experience, they all agreed that they’d jump at the chance of doing a similar challenge in the future.
