This Summer Father Michael and friends, the Mikes on Bikes, will be challenging themselves to another mammoth ride. This time it is Coast 2 Coast across the USA from June to August. They will cycle 4,500 miles and climb over 200,000 feet.
They are raising money for three charities:
- St Joseph's Primary School – We are raising money for our parish school, every penny raised will go towards much needed resources and supplies to support them in their learning.
- Water Aid – Clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene are basic human rights. They should be a normal part of daily life for everyone, everywhere – but they aren't. Water Aid reaches millions of people with to provide them with clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene, enabling entire communities to unlock their potential, break free from poverty and change their lives for good.
- Adventure Cycling – We invite you to support Adventure Cycling's mission to inspire, empower, and connect people to travel by bicycle.
You can follow their training leading up to the event and their gruelling ride on Facebook on the page Coast 2 Coast 2020 @ccoast2020.

They will also be having a shorter social ride for all, details to follow in due course.
