Event details

The Carbon Fivers Charity Cycle 2016

Richard Wadsworth, Mark Christie and Iain Harper from Carbon, along with Max Chassels, Ian Ord, Nigel Chapman, Alex Marshall, Hamish Low and Ally Gray have cycled around the North of Scotland for charity.
They have cycled 500 miles in five days – including the Bealach Na Ba, one of the hardest climbs in the UK - without the addition of the wind and the rain they endured!
We are raising money for Winning Scotland Foundation, which we think is a really important charity that, through sport, works to create a culture where all young people in Scotland have the opportunity to develop themselves and learn important life skills.
The charity's projects work across schools, communities and sport to help young people learn crucial skills and competencies such as resilience and self-belief and also help raise attainment and confidence.
All monies raised will be going direct to the charity, you can find out more about their work at
