st petereburg to moscow cycle ride – september 2008

In September 2008, June Thompson and George Watson cycled from St Petersburg to Moscow and raised over £5,000 for ThePromise.

George and June completed the tough cycle through Russia’s changing landscape, travelling through remote villages, induatrial towns and miles and miles of nothingness!  The weather was one of the challenges, but both arrived in Moscow smiling.

The bike ride was organsied by Charity Challenge and there were people on it who were raising money for their favourite charities.  With hundreds of inspirational challenges organised by Charity Challenge each year they have so far helped to raise around £15 million for over 750 charities. Expeditions include treks, mountain bike rides, mountain climbs, white water rafting, sailing, horse riding and Community Challenges and take place all over the world.

We are now registered as one of their charities, so if you, or anyone you know is interested, please have a look at their website – sounds great for “gap” years and those who just need a challenge…….
