The team from BigChange will cycle the breadth of Lancashire and Yorkshire in support of the transport charity Transaid

Three members of the BigChange senior leadership team are set to cycle 170 miles across the UK in support of the international development charity Transaid. 

CEO Richard Warley, Chief Operating Officer Jo Godsmark and VP for European operations John Mills will tackle the coast-to-coast ride along the Way of the Roses cycle route. 

The team will start in Morecambe, Lancashire on Friday 24th and pass through four counties, and climb over 2500m of hills, to finish the second day’s cycle in Bridlington, Yorkshire. 

Our racers are putting rubber to the road in support of Transaid, a long-term charity partner of BigChange that works to improve road safety and access to health through transport solutions in developing nations. 

You can help the team reach their £3,000 donation goal here

Most recently, BigChange worked with Transaid to provide a HGV driver training simulator for the Industrial Training Centre in Lusaka, Zambia. The money raised from our brilliant cyclists will go towards further initiatives that revolutionise sustainable and safe transport across the world..

During the two-day event, the BigChange team will pass through the historic towns of Settle and Harrogate along with stretches of the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland. You can stay up to date with the team on the BigChange socials, as they share photos and progress. 

We wish the team the best of luck and hope to see your support as they gear up for this fantastic challenge.
