Charity Bike Ride Across South America, 1 Man, 1 Bike, 7 Weeks And 3,000 Tough Miles!

A good friend of, Simon Panther, has challenged himself to ride a touring bicycle from Lima, Peru to Buenos Aires in Argentina. The 3000 miles are to be covered in just 7 weeks with no support, no spares, no map (really!) and little preparation.

“I just booked a flight to Lima, Peru leaving next Monday. It is a very last minute under prepared & a stupid adventure I hope to survive!! Any money donated will go straight to Cancer Research UK. I put a target of £3,000 pounds because that’s one pound for every mile I ride. It’s a huge amount but you’ve gotta aim high to achieve greatness!”

We’re proud to be sponsoring Simon’s massive South American challenge and will be watching his progress closely over the next few weeks. We wish him the best of luck.

You too can donate to Simon’s JustGiving page here:
