On Monday 25th June and Tuesday 26th, three Adult Skills clients will be embarking on a two day, 73 mile bike ride, taking in some of the main Linkage sites: Weelsby – Linkage Green Café, Mablethorpe – Scremby –Toynton – Boultham Park in Lincoln.
Anthony Spiers, Adult Skills Coordinators, who has arranged the challenge says:
“I dreamt up the Tour De Linkage after watching the Tour De Yorkshire a year or two ago. We hadn’t done a challenge for a while and certainly nothing on this scale so after the success we had entering the first learning disability team into the Louth Triathlon and placing third in the overall team category, it seemed like a great idea.
The Tour De Linkage is about giving the clients a chance to take their sporting interest to another level and to challenge themselves. It’s about shining a spotlight on the abilities within disabilities, as well as a good chance to fundraise.
Just over 70 miles in two days is a tough distance as none of the guys have ridden this far before but it’s not unachievable. We’re in for an interesting couple of days.”
Day 1: Grimsby to Mablethorpe, Scremby to Toynton.
Day 2: Toynton to Boultham Park, Lincoln
