Raising funds for disabled children
There are an estimated 70,000 disabled children and young people in the UK waiting for a wheelchair that fits their young lives. That’s where Whizz-Kidz come in.
They provide disabled children with the essential wheelchairs and other mobility equipment they need to lead fun and active childhoods.
They’re having fun whizzing around obstacle courses, knocking over skittles, doing wheelies and learning about boring but important things like road safety at wheelchair skills courses.

It's upon us. Next week, the ride to London and back starts, covering 440 odd miles. 440 miles. It's a lot of miles, is that.
We've been very lucky whilst training and preparing for this challenge. The generosity of those helping us continues to make us very grateful.

Dom and Stu do their best Chuckle Brothers act, Dom punctures without a clue how to fix it and James and Stu visit Lincolnshire...

So, after 6 weeks of a shiny new bike sat in the Strawberry offices last weekend saw me finally get out on my Planet X machine!
With the rubbish winter we've been having, we'd have been stuck without Simon and Ricky at The Village Hotel in Hull.
The second entry from James' video diary... and the first time out on the bike.
They say that pain is just weakness leaving the body. I didn’t realise just how weak I was until I picked up the training for this challenge. It seems that years of pen pushing and keyboard tapping have taken their toll!
The challenge of biking to London and back is starting to sink in and it’s clear that it’s going to take one big effort from the team to complete it.
I'm having to ride to London and back and it's all my fault. Yes, this thing started off as my idea and whilst training has started, we now need to get a bit more serious…

Hull to London - and back!
We're going to cycle to the Whizz-Kidz office in central London - it's around the corner from the Queen's house! That's 440 miles. Gulp.
