Children in Need Land’s End to John O’Groats Challenge

Cookson Cycles Children in Need Challenge – Land’s End to John O’Groats!!

The staff at Cookson Cycles have set themselves the momentous challenge of riding the distance of Land’s End to John O’Groats (874Miles) over 6 days in store for Children In Need.

We will have a dedicated turbo trainer set up in store, using Zwift virtual cycling software with an Elite Drivo Smart trainer to record the distance. Staff members will take it in turns to cover the gruelling 874miles between them during opening hours from Monday 13th November through to Saturday 18th November, all for Children in Need.

To give this challenge some context, we will need to ride 145miles a day – this means we need to average just over 18 mph for 8hrs a day over the 6 days!!!

Come in and support us!! There will be a Children in Need cake stand where you can buy cake, coffee and tea, with all proceeds going to Children in Need. We will also have a raffle with lots of prizes from our suppliers.

So why not come in and enjoy a coffee or tea and cake while cheering the team on!!

As well as the target distance, we are also hoping to smash a fundraising target of £1000 for Children in Need – you can sponsor us online here or donate in store. All support will be very gratefully received.

Turbo trainers can be boring unless you have a set training plan to follow, but then training plans are more suited to racers and we are not all racers! now you can spice up your indoor riding by using an interactive trainer and connecting to Zwift online – chasing strava KOM’s, racing your mates,  shifting through gears when you hit a 15% climb, or just going around for a spin, its all for making that indoor riding experience a lot more fun!

The best part of all this is we at Cookson Cycles have teamed up with Zwift and we are now a Zwift Experience store –
