Mission accomplished! - BLACKMORE RICOTECH

Mission accomplished!

29th July 2016

Our director Simon Barfoot has made it to the Black Sea in the Ukraine on a recycled bike, and all for charity. Marking our 20th birthday, Simon set off from Blackmore Vale in Wiltshire, taking 25 days to cover 2,346 miles through 11 countries and finishing 5 days ahead of schedule…

It’s not too late to sponsor Simon and give to his chosen charities. To learn more about his journey and make a donation visit http://www.blackmore2blacksea.com.

On the 16 June at 11am, Simon set off for his month long bike ride in aid of two worthy causes, Hope and Homes for Children (HHC), and local man Nick Hole who suffered a heart attack from undiagnosed Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (ARVC). Along his way, Simon was able to visit and spend time with several families and projects supported by HHC. This meant, Simon was able to see how the money he raised will be used to help families across the world.

Simon’s journey took him through 11 countries including England, France, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Moldova and Ukraine. In true Blackmore Ricotech fashion, the journey was completed, not on a state-of-the-art tourer, but on an old mountain bike destined for the scrap heap. This mountain bike has now been gifted to a Ukrainian youth club, Owl Youth Club, a final charitable gesture before Simon returns to the UK.

An exhausted Simon says of his trip:

“I am thrilled to have completed my journey after nearly a month on the road! I am exhausted, but very humbled and grateful for all the support I have received. I have travelled over 2,346 miles, with 188 hours pedaling and met so many people along the way that have welcomed me with open arms.

I am now more driven than ever to raise as much money as possible making this journey all worth while!”
