The Team Townend Pushbike Challenge is a cycling event in memory of Christian and Niggy Townend who were killed in a road crash whilst out cycling in 2010. The aims of the day are to raise money for charity, challenge yourself, enjoy cycling and remember Christian and Niggy.
The course (you can choose between a 40-mile route and a 22-mile route) takes in some of the most scenic and spectacular parts of the Lake District, as well as some of its most challenging roads, including the Whinlatter, Honister and Newlands passes. The first challenge took place in April 2011 and we have now raised over £60,000 for our chosen charity, RoadPeace. Since then it has grown into a popular sportive event, with 300 riders per year.
