ABOUT THE C2C CHALLENGE:

A challenging off-road coast to coast (C2C) MTB ride over 4 days from 12-15 May 2017 based on a route from Whitehaven to Tynemouth but including miles of remote red and black grade trails and singletrack through the Lake District (incl Honister Pass), North Pennine Moorland and reaching a height of almost 800 metres above sea level! A real test of technical mountain biking skills and stamina.

IMG-20170421-WA0002

On April 21st classes 2RM and 2CG attended the Somerset school games at Milfield school. This was a fantastic opportunity for inclusion and the boys thoroughly enjoyed the whole day! They were busy throwing, running, catching and jumping and all worked very hard and tried their best.

 

The day was lead by sixth form pupils at Milfield school and the boys loved getting to know and working alongside the older pupils. Great day all round, well done everyone!
