Hi all…tomorrow, Saturday 12 December, myself and a great team around me will attempt the C2C2C challenge ride from Saltburn to Morecambe then back again, raising money for Bowel Cancer UK.
Before things get too ‘busy’ tomorrow, I would just like to say a few thankyou’s…. .
Firstly to the amazing team and club members who despite the conditions have selflessly said they would like to help? They include Toby Tanfield, Aaron Preston, John Kelly (Jnr), Lee O’Leary, Dan Waring, Marcus Smith, Ryan Murray, Ian Fryett, Peter Gunn, Eoin Carroll and Hilton Armstrong. Unfortunately, due to COVID regulations I had to limit it to two groups, but would also like to thank Martin Kendrew and Tom Pugh for putting themselves forward in case of anyone dropping out.
I would also like to thank Dave Kirton and Shaun O’Shea. Due to injury niggles they were unable to ride however instantly said they would like help as a mechanical back up vehicle for the day.
Thanks to all who offered to bake cakes, loan lights etc…I think we are all OK but your generosity and willingness to help is truly appreciated!
After realising my wheels were just about shot, thanks to Harry Tanfield for loaning me a pair of his HUNT wheels, last minute for the ride.
Thanks also to all who have sponsored – so far, £10,300 has been raised for Bowel Cancer UK, which is absolutely incredible.
With everyone pulling together like this it makes me proud to be a member of the Cleveland Wheelers and part of such a great club!
We had a practice ride last weekend, riding to the British Cycling protocol so hopefully everything will run smoothly.
Anyone who would still like to sponsor, just go to ‘Just Giving Andrew Curson’. Everyone who sponsors will automatically be entered into a raffle with prizes that include an INEOS jersey, signed by Luke Rowe. A signed AG2R Mondiale bidon, cap and Vuelta race number by local cycling legend Harry Tanfield. A Beefeater Bend cycling jersey (which can be signed or unsigned ), plus many more prizes – see below. Finally, we will be arriving back into Saltburn approximately 19:30-20:00 on Saturday evening, so if you’re down that way it would be good to see some smiling faces to welcome us back home after such a long day (obvisouly observing social distancing guidelines).
Thanks again everyone and stay safe, Andy.

Dear Cleveland Wheelers,
I hope this email finds all of you well. My name is Lorna and I work for Middlesbrough and Stockton Mind and wanted to share something I hope some of your members might be interested in.
Middlesbrough and Stockton Mind is the leading local mental health charity for Teesside. We have an exciting event happening in September that we would love you to support and be a part of.
As a result of the generous contributions we have been able to send each charity a cheque for £223:50
MANY THANKS to everyone who rode or helped with the organisation.
It has been suggested that we do the event for charity again next year- watch this space.
