Raised over £251,000 in total! This included a hugely generous pledge to match fund all riders’ collections and donations from Sofa Sofa of £50,000 and £50,000 from RESOLVEit. With £222,730 donated to JDRF – the Type 1 medical research charity.

We’ve also donated to and a number of smaller donations and organisations helping us on the day:

  • Wales Air Ambulance
  • Pembrokeshire Blood Bikes
  • Ysgol Pen-Y-Bryn
  • Aphasic Cymru
  • Bike Ability Wales
  • Morello’s Marvels
  • Tenby Sea Cadets
  • Raglan Boys and Girls Club for their help in hosting us for a refreshment stop
  • Burry Port RNLI for their help in hosting us for a refreshment stop
  • Gower ton RFC for their help in hosting us for a refreshment stop

Weren’t we spoilt this year again, with 2500 riders and sunshine pretty much all the way, and a favourable wind to get us to Tenby in good time! The party in the harbour afterwards provided a lovely setting for a bite to eat and a well earned cool beer poured via the new super fast beer pumps!
