On the 6th August 2010, Barrie Mahon, North West regional manager for the Good Garage Scheme, will be attempting to ride his mountain bike across the Trans Pennine Trail in aid of the Stroke Association.
The Trans Pennine Trail stretches 237 miles across the North of England, beginning from Southport on the west coast to Hornsea on the East coast. The route passes through a wide range of urban and rural environments, alongside rivers, canals and other dramatic scenery with varied gradients and winding paths to keep Barrie working hard to achieve his goal.
Barrie’s mother died from a stroke in 2008 and would like to give a little back to the charity. You can donate to this cause on Barrie’s Just Giving page and follow his progress throughout his journey on Facebook.
Good luck Barrie!
