CatZero Cycle Challenge



The fundraising challenge for CatZero continues

Every year we are extremely grateful to our partners, supporters and fundraisers for allowing us to continue the work we have been doing to change young people's lives in the Humber region.

2017 saw the third CatZero Cycle Challenge take place. With some trepidation, riders took to their saddles and completed 170 miles of the Trans Pennine Trail, cycling from Liverpool to Hull over three days.

The journey was challenging but the scenery was stunning and the laughs plentiful.  It was a great team effort.

A big thank you goes to the riders and everyone who supported us especially those who sponsored us. We raised over £19,000, which is an amazing achievement!


The Event

The planning for the 2018 event has already begun and we're delighted to announce that CCC2018 will be held on 8th, 9th and 10th June 2018.  It will again follow the Trans Pennine Trail.  Unlike most other long-distance cycle routes in the UK, the Trail is mostly off- road along canals, riversides and dis-used railway lines.  It passes through many urban areas but also beautiful countryside, taking in picturesque villages, castles and abbeys along the way. The riding will commence on Friday lunchtime from Liverpool Albert Dock. The Friday night will be spent in Southport after a 50 mile cycle. Day 2 will take on the Pennines finishing in Doncaster after 70 miles. The Sunday will be the final 50 miles cycle back to Hull for a celebration event and hog roast.

The travel logistics, accommodation, health and safety and support team will be taken care of – all we need is for people to prepare for the challenge, raise some money and turn up with their bikes and lycra

The Challenge

We are looking to offer 20 exclusive riding positions for the 2018 event. Participants will be asked to pay £50 per day (£150 in total) to cover the cost of accommodation and support along the route, plus endeavor to raise a further £500 for the CatZero Charity.

All funds raised will be reinvested into the Charity to help continue changing the lives of young people.

We are looking for expressions of interest at this stage.
