MOUNTBATTEN'S End 2 End cycling event will return this month.

Considered the charity’s toughest fundraising challenge, End 2 End tests endurance and skill over some of the best off-road routes on the Island, including the famous Tennyson Trail.

It starts at Culver Down and cyclists can choose the 45km route, finishing on Tennyson Down, or the 90km distance by taking any off-road route back to Culver.

The event takes place on August 15.

“We are so pleased to be able to stage End 2 End again, after what has been an incredibly difficult time for us all over the last 18 months,” said Nigel Hartley, Mountbatten chief executive.

“We really hope to welcome hundreds of cyclists for the challenge, all helping to play their part as we look to get back on track with our fundraising activities.”

The event was started by David Issac, a doctor at Mountbatten, who has a passion for cycling.

Mountbatten has supported it directly since 2011.

Cyclists can sign up by making a donation or pledging to fundraise for Mountbatten. Every pound raised will help support the thousands of Islanders through death, dying and bereavement.
