On 13th October 2012 thirty cyclists left Axminster in Devon and rode 769 miles to the Slow Food Salone del Gusto festival in Turin, Italy, in memory of Philippa Corbin. We rode to raise awareness of depression and raise funds for two charities.

Happy New year to all those who have supported and been a part of Slow Ride to Turin 2012!

Though the cycle itself lasted less than 2 weeks, the journey for me and many others lasted much longer with all the planning, training and fundraising before and after. It has been a challenging journey both physically and mentally and there were a lot of ups and downs along the way (quite literally) but it has been a wonderful and enriching experience and a perfect tribute to my sister Philippa.

The support we have received from all sorts of people from all walks of life has been truly overwhelming and I can’t thank you all enough. The total we have raised to date is now over £60,000 which is an immense sum and I know The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust and The Human Givens Foundation will be able to make some significant progress with this.

WE ARE GOING TO CLOSE THE ONLINE CHARITY GIVING PAGE FOR SRTT ON 21st JANUARY 2013 so if you would like to make any last minute donations make sure you get them in before then! I will aim to keep the SRTT website up to date with what the charities are up to and what the money we have all raised is put towards.

If you would like to continue to support either of the charities after the 21st, the ‘charities’ pages have links to their websites.

All the best for a happy 2013 full of good food and two wheeled adventures.
