Cycle Ride from Kent to Japan

A team of six cyclists cycled from Aylesham in Kent to Krakow.  Dale, Linford and Keith House continued their ride from Poland through the Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, Tajikstan, Uzbekistan, Krygystan, China arriving in Japan in time for the Rugby World Cup.  Their journey was an epic 111 days and about 8241 miles!   At a Welcome Home party organised by friends and family, Slide Away Trustees Lyn Mannering and Linda Cann presented Dale and Linford with certificates and welcomed home two of the three Snowy Bears who travelled with the cyclists.  Sadly, one of our Snowy Bears was absconded or kidnapped in China, but we hope that he will turn up at some time in the future.  Their efforts have raised funds for Slide Away and there is still the opportunity to donate as Keith, the third cyclist to reach Japan, has flown to the USA and plans to cycle from LA to Miami - thus having cycled around the World.  Their Giving page will remain open until December 31st 2019.
