Corner to Corner on a bike – Key Date Schedule

Our friend, Richard Boxhall, is preparing to cycle 5,000 miles across the USA to raise money for ShelterBox UK. Read the latest in his series of blogs for us, as he outlines his kit list for the trip. Don’t forget anything!


With my departure rapidly approaching, my plans are becoming concrete. So here are a list of when I think I’ll be hitting my milestones.

The Corner to Corner key dates are:

Last Day at Work! – 27th July 2012

The Journey Begins: Helston, Cornwall – 1st August 2012

I intend starting the cycling in the UK and where better to start than ShelterBox HQ in Helston. Myself and my mate Paul will then make our way back towards Bristol.

Bristol to Reading Bike Ride – 4/5th August 2012

Reading to Gatwick – 6th August 2012
My last day in the UK, eeek!

Flight to Vancouver – 7th August 2012

From here on in, a bit of guesswork has been applied…

All of us at Taunton Leisure are wishing Richard the best of luck as he gets very close to his challenge. We implore you to support him in anyway you can by visiting his Virgin Moneygiving page.
