NHGS are going on an outing with a difference this summer – a 170-mile cycle ride for forty two students between the west and east coasts of northern England.
Starting on the 15th of July the young adventurers aged from 13-15 are riding along the famous C2C Way of the Roses route from Morecambe to Bridlington – raising funds to buy equipment and resources for their school in the process. They will take four days to complete the route and finish on the 18th July.
This will be the third year that the school has done a cycle fundraiser. Last year the students rode the C2C route from St Bee’s in Cumbria to Tynemouth and raised over £10,000 for the schools new Sports Hall.
Two years ago the students also raised over £10,000 for the new sports hall by completing the Way of the Roses route. Twenty eight students were involved in the first NHGS cycle fundraiser and the number of students wanting to get involved has grown each year to this massive number of forty two riders on the road. The students come back to school and relay what an adventure they have had and this builds enthusiasm and participation for the trip the following year.
The students always carry their own gear and will be doing their own cooking so they have the proper cycle touring experience. They will be fully self-sufficient and will build loads of new skills. Fully loaded with cooking equipment and clothes, they will find this trip tough. The students will need to show determination, grit and resilience to succeed. The ride is starting on the 15th of July and the group can’t wait to get going!
