The 2014 Toon To Town Challenge

Once again, Parc Y Scarlets marked the start point of the beginning of the 2014 Toon To Town Challenge. Fifteen riders gathered for start, aiming to cover the 450 mile route in five days.

The two main charities which were supported in 2014 were The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and Help For Heroes with Matthew Williams raising money on behalf of the Stroke Association.

A change of route this year meant a slightly shorter distance taking in Hull and the Humber Bridge, but resulted in a last leg which went from Scotch Corner to Newcastle and took in some very challenging County Durham hills, coupled with the first rain since the ride began.

Support was provided by Dennis and Jim driving a van, kindly sponsored again by Neil Watson of Watson's Timber, who ensured that everyone was fed, watered and safe. The Challenge was completed when the riders arrived at St James Park on 13th June.
