This April, a group of Merklers have decided to embark on a cycling trip to challenge even the most experienced of lycra lovers. Over nine days they will be cycling the length of the UK, from Land's End to John O'Groats, a total of 960 miles with over 30k of hill climbs. 

Turning their passion of cycling into something more meaningful, Vim, Alex, Chris, Ollie, John, Vic, Tom, Richard, and Kay are raising funds for two fantastic charities which are close to the hearts of several team members,  Bloodwise (formerly Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research) and Duchenne UK.

With the goal to raise £20,000 and 55 days of training to go until they begin, they have so far achieved 26% of their target. Whether it’s a penny or a pound, every contribution helps. To find out more, please visit their Virgin Money Giving page.
