Day 6 of the Hoplite Charity Bike Ride and Team GRC have crossed the border back into England and on to the finish line in Hereford… which coincidentally turned out to be at another pub! A huge thanks from Iain and Mike for all the kind comments from everyone, it’s been a great trip and the support and sponsorship for this worthy cause is hugely appreciated!
The Hoplite Charity Bike Ride rolls on to day 5 and the end is almost in sight! After a week of sunshine, it was a slightly damp start to the day when Iain and Mike mounted up in Nantgaredig, but they were soon on their way, finishing in Three Cocks (must resist childish jokes…) to a day which has seen… 54 miles covered and 20 pints and 5 curry lunches consumed!
Day 4 of the Hoplite Charity Bike Ride and Team GRC have covered another 50 miles! Mounting up in Solva, they headed East through gentle… okay, okay… steep Welsh hills, to end the day in Nantgaredig, just past Carmarthen. This was also the point where the boys “Jack Wagon” support crew swapped over from Jimmy Hayes to Gaz Pope – a huge thank you to Jimmy from Iain and Mike for all his help this week!
Day 3 of the Tour de Wales and Team GRC have completed the North to South leg of the Hoplite Charity Bike Ride, covering 185 miles so far! Starting the day in New Quay, Iain and Mike made their way down the Welsh coast to St Davids, before turning the corner to Solva, where like true athletes… they went to the pub!
Day 2 and back in the saddle for Team GRC on the Hoplite Fund Charity Bike Ride. Iain and Mike set off from Dolgellau, heading through Aberystwyth and finishing the day in New Quay, another 60 miles done and a well earned ice cream to celebrate! A huge thank you from the boys for all the likes and comments on our Twitter and LinkedIn accounts too, they’re much appreciated!
Day 1 of the GRC Hoplite Fund Charity Bike Ride done and dusted! Team GRC (Iain Pope and Mike McBride) set off bright and early this morning from Holyhead, Anglesey, made their way across the Menai Bridge, through the beautiful Welsh countryside to Dolgellau, covering 72 miles – well done chaps!
