On 23rd January 2016 we will be hosting a 12-hour Wattbike Charity Challenge. The nominated charity is Cancer Research UK.


The event will run from 8:00am to 8:00pm.


There will be twelve teams, each of eight riders. Each team has a nominated Team Captain (see schedule below) and it is the captain's responsibility to fill in their slot in the schedule with the names/details of the eight riders, and to ensure that those riders are present and ready to go at the specified time (no pressure there then!).


Cost is £10 per rider, per hour. Payment will be taken on the day, at Registration.


The targets are 2,000 miles ridden and £1,000 generated.


There is a donation page:- https://www.justgiving.com/Wattathon/


Each team will ride for exactly 60 minutes and the distances for each Wattbike will be recorded at the end of the 60 minutes. We will allow 2 minutes for changeover to the next team (distance recorded, rider off, clean down machine, next rider on, bike adjusted, Wattbike reset, rider ready to go). So in essence we will slip 2 minutes every hour (eg the 9:00am session will actually start at 9:02, the 10:00am at 10:04 etc etc), but we will ride for the full total of 12 hours.


If you would like to ride then either contact the relevant Team Captain, or Luke Selibas.


Additionally, to raise further funds we will run a raffle on the day.....so if you have any prizes you/your company would like to donate then we would love to hear from you.


Final result


Well done to all the teams, riders and event staff. We pedaled 2,243 miles and raise what looks to be over £2,000. Absolutely brilliant.
