Blogging On The Move

Despite a brisk head wind, it's not a bad day for a cycle ride. I've managed to avoid all the broken glass along the route and made it to the Cycle Hub.

We now have a Facebook page (I think!). After spending some time setting it up it seemed that I was the only one who could see it. Twelve hours later it is now visible to everyone.

As well as keeping fit and healthy and having fun, Seaton Sluice Backpedalers aim to raise money for worthwhile causes, usually a charity with local connections. In 2013 we raised £3680 which was divided between the Percy Hedley Foundation and Marie Curie Cancer UK.

This year we have decided to support the Great North Air Ambulance.
An air ambulance charity serving Cumbria, the North-East and North Yorkshire 365 days a year. We need to raise £4m a year to keep our three helicopters flying.
Living (and cycling) near the Northumberland coast we are all aware of the need for need for such an organisation and the important work that they do.

Sponsor forms will be available soon along with details of how donations can be made online.

Cycle Challenge 2014

After last year's successful Coast To Coast Ride Seaton Sluice Backpedalers have decided to undertake another biking challenge. The route we have chosen is Hadrian's Cycleway (NCN 72), beginning in Ravenglass and ending at the Delaval Arms, Old Hartley.

Planning is well advanced and the ride will begin on May 24th and end on May 26th. Accommodation has been booked in Silloth and Haltwhistle.
