Our annual team challenge, The Big Crow Adventure – the Crows are riding this year 400km in 4 days, all off road, knobbly tired bikes, no flying or stealing performance-enhancing worms… in the traditional UK ‘dry season’ of October…
This year we’re doing the ride in aid of Footprints Orphanage – please take a look at their website to see the incredible work they do to help the children. In the UK, we have free health care, education and we don’t go hungry, but in Kenya that doesn’t happen. With your help we can continue to give these children a loving home environment and hope for the future. Every penny raised goes direct to the Orphanage.
Our route is roughly 100km or 60 miles per day:
Day 1: Crow Towers – Wirksworth in the Peak District, via the Trent & Mersey, Erewash & Cromford Canals
Day 2: Wirksworth – Sandbach in Cheshire via the High Peak Trail, Buxton and the Derbyshire reservoirs, the High Peak Canal to Marple near Stockport then down the Middlewood Path and Macclesfield Canal into the Cheshire Plain.
Day 3: Sandbach – Sandbach along the Shropshire Union canal, through the Beeston Gap to Chester, then up to the Bridgewater Canal and back down the top section of the Trent & Mersey via the Anderton Lift
Day 4: Sandbach to Crow Towers, along the Trent & Mersey through the Potteries and a much needed meal of grubs, dried insects and possibly twig sprinkles.
