2015 175 miles from Sheffield to Newcastle

WP_20150727_005Team Simpson’s 2015 cycling challenge was to cycle 175 miles from SHEFFIELD to NEWCASTLE to raise some much needed funds for 2 very wonderful charities, Bristol Mind& Home for Good. Bristol Mind works to raise awareness, reduce stigma and promote good emotional and mental health. Home for Good is a nationwide charity who work together with church communities to promote adoption and fostering.

The ride began on July 25th in Sheffield city centre and over the next 9 days and 175 miles took in the many hills and sights of Yorkshire, North Yorkshire, Durham and Tyneside, ending in Newcastle on August 2nd. As ever, our amazing children pedaled the whole way themselves although Charli & Gracie ‘tagged-along’ near main roads and busy sections of the route.


Thanks to all the excellent support from people, we raised £2478.98
