Route 66 – An unbelievable challenge

Route 66 Cycle

In 2012 Skyline had a special request from 8 determined participants! The group had previously taken part in our flagship London to Paris bike ride and 3 Cities Cycle and wanted to up their game with more of a challenge.

Skyline set about organising the infamous ‘Route 66’ cycle which covers the breadth of America from Chicago through to Santa Monica.  The events team risk assessed and planned the entire route, including all accommodation and logistics, there would also be crew on hand daily in support vehicles to help the team. In October the group peddled off for the adventure of their lives.

The route was covered in an amazing 7 days 3 hours and 45 minutes, with almost £36,000 raised for Help for Heroes and The Willow foundation. The team were ecstatic to complete their challenge, but don’t take our word for it – read about the epic adventure here:
