Ready for the journey

Ready for the journey

A dozen lads have embarked upon a ride to Southend via Leigh Skate Park.  They met this morning (Saturday 3rd) at Hardie Park and were waved off by family and friends.

Sponsorship hasn’t been totalled yet but they are expecting to have raised over £500.

Blog updates will be added here throughout the day.


10:58am I’m about to leave home in the car with some drinks on board to hunt them down! Rob

12:45pm After 45 mins of tricks n stunts at Leigh Skate Park, they set off on the final leg of the journey along the seafront. They picked a perfect day for it!

1:00pm – I couldn’t resist driving ahead of them so I could get some video footage of them riding along Chalkwell Seafront

I returned home confident that they would get to Southend but unsure of whether they would cop a train back or ride…

5:00pm – I’m at my Mum in laws, cooking a BBQ when the boys shout, the BMX lads are back!!  All tanned (some burnt) and fairly exhausted, 6 of them had come round to tell me they were home safe and sound…Great news!

Finished (literally!)

Finished (literally!)

We went back to Hardie for one final photo shoot, they were too tired to record a video summary of their experience so you’ll have to wait for that!
