Bikes Against Bullies are going on a Grand Tour! All the way from Lands End to John O’Groats on nothing more than 50cc scooters on a journey of almost 1000miles!
And its all for one very special reason. Each year at least 15 young people sadly take their own lives due to bullying. So as part of the Bikes Against Bullies suicide awareness week, each day of this incredible journey will be in memory of one of those young victims who felt they had no other option but to end their lives early. Sadly this happened recently to a family close to the heart of one of our reps and just highlights how easily this can occur within our societey. Therefore we hope this will signifficantly raise the profile of our anti-bullying campaign to show young people that there is support and will help us raise lots of money to help recruit some new youth ambassadors as well as helping us to continue to do the work we do in taking a stand againt bullying!
Each day will be split into three seperate rides along the route, so that hopefully as many of you as possible will have the chance to join Bikes Against Bullies president Christopher Cooper and VP Adrian Rigden as they take on this amazing challenge. Over the coming weeks we will get the route and times published, but in the mean time we need your help!
We are currently needing van hire for the support vehicle as well as needing accommodation in the following areas for 3 people on the dates below. Also if you know of a local bike night or biker pub in those areas we would love for them to get involved too, so please get in touch or ask them to via firstname.lastname@example.org
More details will follow as we continue to put this amazing project together!
