Mission: Pedal from Canterbury to Amsterdam in only 48 hours in aid of Seeds for Africa

Seven students celebrating their final year at the University of Kent are taking on the challenge of cycling more than 250 miles to Amsterdam. The graduates are leaving Canterbury on Thursday 2 July and heading to Amsterdam passing through England, France and Belgium, completing their ride in just 48 hours. A mighty feat!

Cycling throughout Kent, the group have been training hard with Kent Sport for their endurance-testing ride. Oli Prior, Healthy, Fitness and Performance Manager, helped with nutritional guidance and they also spoke with Vicky Annis, Physiotherapist, to help them with any nagging injuries before the big event.

The cyclists are hoping to raise £15,000 for Seeds for Africa, a charity based at the University of Kent. Seeds for Africa, helps African families and communities by the provision of seeds, agricultural equipment and relevant technical advice, aiming to give individuals and communities a self-sufficient, sustainable future. Their vision is to reduce poverty and hunger by enabling people to help themselves.
