The challenge

  • Raise funds to help support the UK's most vulnerable children
  • Commemorate Thomas Barnardo's route from 1866
  • Cycle from Holyhead to Barnardo's Village through picturesque Welsh and English countryside
  • Fundraise for Barnardo's during its 150th year
  • Cycle up to 362 miles over 5 days

The journey commemorates the one Thomas Barnardo took when he arrived from Dublin in Holyhead in April 1866 on his way to London, where he discovered children in desperate need of his help. From that moment his work started and from this point your challenge begins.

You will cycle up to 362 miles through the beautiful Welsh and English countryside going through highlights such as the Cotswold and the Chilterns. Over the next 5 days you will ride through classic quaint villages, past ancient castles and churches, and take in stunning vistas.

I rang Barnardo's because I was too ashamed to tell anyone else.
