‘Home from Home’ – Cycle from Llandudno to Porthcawl
In the early hours of Saturday the 22nd of June 2019, I together with a small group of Swansea Masons will be jumping on our bikes to take on my biggest ever cycling challenge in aid of the 2021 Festival supporting the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution. You may be aware that two of the seventeen Care Homes owned and managed by the RMBI are located in Wales, they are The Queen Elizabeth Court in Llandudno, North Wales and our very own Albert Edward Prince of Wales Court located in Porthcawl, South Wales.
The challenge I, together with my team of ‘Home from Home’ cyclists is to take on is to ride from Llandudno, North Wales to Porthcawl, South Wales, in ONE DAY. This is a total of approximately 175 miles with in excess of 10,000ft of accumulative climbing. To achieve this we will be cycling from The Queen Elizabeth Court, Llandudno at 4.30am that Saturday morning with the aim of averaging a moving speed of 13mph which equates to nearly 14 hours in the saddle. Factoring in rest and food stops we hope to be arriving at The Albert Edward Prince of Wales Court, Porthcawl approximately 16 hours later, that being 8.30pm that evening, a very long and hard day of cycling!
Brethren we are looking for your support and sponsorship to make this massive challenge a success for the 2021 Festival.
Thank you for your support
My warmest fraternal regards,
Simon Francis ProvJGW
