Ever fancied cycling from Poole to Alton Towers?
Volunteers from our Poole and Bournemouth group cycle from Poole to Alton Towers for Dream,s.
Ever fancied cycling from Poole to Alton Towers? It’s 215 miles/346 km. No? Neither did the Poole/Bournemouth team. But we did at our local Everyone Active leisure centre in Poole to raise money for one of our local dreams waiting.
We chose Alton Towers as we were raising money for Thomas who has a rare genetic condition called cri du chat syndrome, as well as scoliosis. He loves rollercoasters and his dream is to ride the rollercoasters in Florida – however, we couldn’t quite cycle that distance in a weekend…so we chose the equally impressive Alton Towers… :D
It took a total 8 hours and just under 5 mins in shifts of 10/20km each and we couldn't feel our legs for a couple days afterwards..
