Help for Heroes – BBBR

Dawn Bagnall joins the cycle ride to raise funds for Help for HeroesDawn Bagnall, proprietor of Delta Training and Consultancy, will be taking part in the Help for Heroes ‘Big Battlefield Bike Ride’.

“This is the second time I have taken part in the Big Battlefield Bike Ride (BBBR).

Why?

“Last year I decided I needed a challenge, and what better way than to do this? To cycle long distances whilst raising money for a charity so close to my heart.

“Having served unscathed in the Military for 22 years, why not give something to the lads and lasses who haven’t been as fortunate as me?

“Last year I cycled from Paris to London, 450 miles in 6 days. It hurt! But what an amazing and humbling experience. Cycling with injured soldiers really puts life into perspective.

Brussels to Paris – 350 miles with 250 Cyclists

“After last year’s punishing ride, I decided to do it again! This year, Sunday 1st June, I’m cycling from Brussels to Paris with 250 cyclists, some of whom are injured veterans of the British Armed Forces, US and Canadian Forces and for the first time the Australian Armed Forces.

“The ride is 350 miles.

“On each day we’ll be stopping at Military cemeteries to have a service to pay our respects to the fallen. An emotional and difficult time for lots of people taking part.

“The most amazing thing about the ride is how a large group of strangers can come together for 6 days and form a bond like a family, supporting each other physically and emotionally. This shows the spirit of human kind.”

Paris to London

“From Paris we make our way back to Blackheath, just outside London. The following day, 8th June, we meet up with 3,000 other cyclists and take part in the Hero Ride, 10 miles through London (I think I can just about manage that) with the grand finalé at Horse Guards Parade, Whitehall.Help for Heroes“This is by far the most awe inspiring event I have ever had the pleasure to take part in.”

    Really good to meet you last month Dawn, we never did get that cycle ride (and Michelle wants a gel saddle before we do the next one!) but well done on your work with Help for Heroes and look forward to meeting again
