“If you are thinking of taking part in this crazy ride to Brighton next year I’d say go for it! Friends, family, come along! It’s not a race, there’s no pressure on you to finish in any superb time…it’s an achievement, I feel great and raised money for a good Charity in the process.”
Lydia says the only way is Brighton with C2C!
Lydia Bright, star of ITV's The Only Way is Essex, has given her backing to Norwood and the Down’s Syndrome Association and urged the public sign up to Capital to Coast to raise vital funds for the charities.
Lydia, a cycling enthusiast whose nephew Spencer has Down’s syndrome, said, "Norwood and the Down's Syndrome Association are amazing charities and provide a lifeline to countless families around the country. I started cycling earlier this year and cannot think of a better way to show your support for such good causes."
"Cycling is a great form of training, one I use all the time personally and for the athletes I train. Capital to Coast Cycle Challenge is a tough route but a great one to have under your belt and what better than doing it for such worthwhile causes. For everyone that steps up to the challenge I wish you all the best of luck!"
