Get on ya bike!

13th June 2017

Get on ya bike!
The plans are now nearly finalised for our first ever cycling challenge here at Weldmar Hospicecare and it will form as challenge number eight of my Colossal 10!
Between 22nd-24th September I will be peddling 170 miles starting from the hospice in Dorchester and passing all of our charity shops around the county.

A route like this has never been done before, it is a great opportunity to see our amazing county via your bike and joined by other Weldmar supporters.
Day one will see us covering Bridport, Lyme Regis and Beaminster with an overnight stay in Evershot. Day two will see us head north covering Sherborne, Gillingham, Shaftesbury, Blandford and Wimborne with our overnight stay in Poole. Finally on day three we will cycle through Swanage, Wareham, Wool, Weymouth, Portland and back to the hospice in Dorchester.

Registration is just £100 which includes your accommodation, breakfast, cycle jersey, support team and water for the challenge. You are then asked to raise a minimum of £500 for Weldmar Hospicecare which will go towards Matt’s Colossal 10 total.
Places are strictly limited for this challenge so if you want to join us on our first ever cycling challenge then get in touch today. Visit or, should you wish to just stay put in the comfort of your home but would like to show your support, please visit
As we reach six months into my Colossal 10 challenges, still left on the list is Wingwalking, 3 Peaks Challenge, Shop to Shop Cycle (above), Borneo Jungle Challenge and the 10 Hour Danceathon (launching very soon here on my Wessex FM blog!)
