One Goal:  to help to transform the lives of young homeless people.

Forum Staff Member Brian Hinton and a group of likeminded friends have set themselves a huge challenge, cycling from Birkenhead to Amsterdam to raise awareness and funds for Forum Housing Association.

The trip will be broken down into seven stages;

Stage 1: Birkenhead to Birmingham. 94 miles.
Stage 2: Birmingham to Oxford. 80 miles.
Stage 3: Oxford to Putney, London. 64 miles.
Stage 4: Putney, London to Calais, France. 90 miles.
Stage 5: Calais, France to Ghent, Belgium. 100 miles.
Stage 6: Ghent, Belgium to Breda, The Netherlands. 73 miles.
Stage 7: Breda, The Netherlands to Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 75 miles.

This will be a total of over 600 miles and around 48 hours of cycling.

We wish the group well as they complete their preparations before undertaking this considerable endeavour at the end of May and will be eagerly following their progress.
