Their story, in their words…

“This was a big challenge for us as none of us were keen cyclists, had cycled a tandem before or even cycled anywhere outside of Feltham. We did some training over the summer but not enough to make us realise how sore we would be cycling that far!

We had planned a route beforehand but that didn’t stop us getting a bit lost! At first we found it difficult and soon realised that we had only travelled 1.3 miles in 20 minutes, but this was because of a very steep incline. This may seem like not a lot but for 4 inexperienced A level students it was nearly impossible! After that the miles flew by and we arrived at Brighton and went to our hostel. We had fun exploring Brighton and had fish and chips. The way back was harder because we were all tired from the day before and it was raining in the morning. However, we all agreed that we felt a sense of accomplishment. We were all proud of ourselves and… the experience made us realise we can do anything we put our minds to.”
