Who? A team of friends raising awareness of mental health issues & especially Bipolar Disorder
What? A number of BIG events aiming to raise loads of cash for Bipolar UK
When? The Lands End to John O'Groats cycle was in June. More events coming soon...
Why? In memory of Duncan Toft, a Bipolar sufferer and close friend, who tragically died aged 41
Training was put on hold for an evening as the riders descended on team sponsor, East Street Cycles in Farnham for an evening of bike mechanics and beers; many meeting up for the first time...
We donned the new Explore Bipolar T-shirts, and had a couple of snaps taken, before Gary, Phil and the team at ESC attempted to answer our many questions and show us a thing or two about how to keep our bikes running for the duration of the ride. Are we better to run with tubeless tyres? How to adjust a rear derailleur? What spares to carry? It was a long evening, but hopefully we'll retain some of it! The East Street team will be driving to meet us after the first week to give our bikes a once over. Thanks to Gary and the team for an educational and fun evening!
