James and Jack had their first training session on a tandem at Odd Down Cycle track (in Bath) on Thursday this week. Thanks to the wonderful charity ‘Wheels for All’ they have been loaned a tandem for their training and enjoyed a gentle introduction around a relatively flat, smooth, quiet track. A few more weeks of this and then they’ll be able to take on some main roads!
The great Tandem Challenge takes place in April this year. James will cycle with an ex pupil (Jack Chitty) from the home of Liverpool FC (James’s team) to Chelsea FC (Jack’s team). This 220 mile adventure will be an enormous test of strength and stamina but we hope to raise valuable funds to continue the great works planned for I Can and I Am in 2018.
