We are supporting the Trust’s Largs to Cowes Charity Cycle which starts on 4th May at their base in Largs, Scotland, and ends at their headquarters in Cowes on Sunday 12th May. They will receive 10p for every kilometre ridden - or £400 if the target is reached.
For this challenge, we have a mystery prize up for grabs!
Everyone who individually cycles more than 10km during the current challenge will be entered into the draw. You'll get an entry for each additional 10km you ride - up to a maximum of 10 entries.
