Fundraising group’s fifteenth bike challenge in aid of Prostate Scotland
The Bouncy Bike Challenge is a 2-day bike challenge which covers around 85 miles over 2 days with the route always located in Scotland. The ‘BBC’ started as a one-off event in 2003 when some long term friends and staff from the Badaguish Centre in Aviemore decided to ‘get on their bikes’ and raise funds for a long sought after trampoline for the centre which provides activity holidays for children with special needs. The first event was such a success that those taking part agreed that it should be an annual event and hence ‘Bouncy Bike’ was born, and you can read more about its history at http://www.bouncybikechallenge.co.uk
The original idea came from Paul and Morag Corrigan – and together with some incredible long term friends and colleagues the event went from strength to strength. They decided that BBCs could raise funds for different charities or worthy causes and this year we at Prostate Scotland will be the lucky recipients of their awareness raising and fundraising.
The Bouncy Bike Challenge is always held over the last weekend of May and in 2017 started this morning, with the team cycling around Old Reekie, the Forth and the Pentlands, and with the events objective to raise funds for deserving charities or causes by completing a sponsored two day bike challenge in Scotland and to ‘enjoy’ the challenge, camaraderie, exercise and stunning scenery in different parts of Scotland as we all age and weather gracefully!
Prostate Scotland would like to thank the BBC team for giving up their time, holidays, efforts, enthusiasm, and sweat to take part and raise funds – it is much appreciated.
