Starting the challenge
Teddy completed a bike ride when he was four years old for Children with Cancer UK and wanted to do another challenge this year. Oliver is his best friend so he asked him to join in and Oliver was excited to accept the challenge. They said:
We chose a bike ride as it’s something we both enjoy. We found it hard to decide on the distance as we don’t usually measure how far we go and the forecast was hot for that day but we needed to do a pretty big distance to get our sponsorship, so we decided on 15km. The challenge was really hard, it was hot, we got nettle stings and some insect bites. Once we got to the half way point it was much better as we then could understand how much further we had to go to finish.
Teddy explains why it was important to him and Oliver that they support Children with Cancer UK:
We wanted to help poorly children as it’s horrible when anyone has cancer but must be especially bad when you’re little.
