Ed’s Rookie Weekend Challenge

Ed Lang is cycling for GCH

On 2 September trustee, Ed Lang is cycling over 100 hilly miles for Goodwill Children’s Homes. He is no cyclist and so his Rookie Weekend Challenge will be to borrow a bike and he will try to cycle over 100 miles from the north coast of Devon to the south coast over the course of a day.

You can help Ed raise money for our great cause by donating directly to his fundraising page. Click on this link to take you to his page-

Ed’s Cycling Challenge

On Saturday trustee, Ed Lang cycled from coast-to-coast to raise money for Goodwill Children’s Homes.With no prior training, he completed the 100-mile journey with Chris (his cycling companion) and they completed their cycling challenge over gravel, grass, and tarmac on two old bikes. It took them 12hrs 1min!

He said that “whilst it’s safe to say that he won’t be taking up cycling as a new hobby, he is still really pleased that he took on and completed the Coast to Coast challenge through Devon”.

You can still donate by visiting his Just Giving page:
