From Whitehaven to Tynemouth – 3rd Time taking on the cycling challenge
Easibathe are once again taking on the C2C, from Whitehaven to Tynemouth and this year we are raising money for Children’s Cancer North. Our challenge starts on Friday 16th September and will end on Sunday 18th September, cycling approximately 140 miles, across 3 days.
This charity is close to the heart of our business because Olly, aged 6 and the nephew of our owners Denise & Martin was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma early this year. Hodgkin Lymphoma is an aggressive cancer which develops in the lymphatic system. Olly has put up such an amazingly brave fight, has undergone chemotherapy treatment and is doing a great job, of “Kicking Cancer’s ****…….
Having seen the bravery and determination of so many children and families navigating this very challenging journey, Olly’s family started fundraising in support of the Children’s Cancer North. To quote Chris Peacock Chairman of NECCR, “Cancer is the number one cause of non-accidental death in children in the UK. Children’s Cancer North strives to raise money to directly fund revolutionary research into the causes and treatment of this terrible disease”.
Children’s Cancer North aims to improve their quality of life through transforming the environment and play experience on the wards, providing access to potentially life saving clinical trials and funding revolutionary research to find more effective treatments.

We have 8 riders with Martin and Denise as the invaluable team support. Not many of the team are seasoned long distance cyclists so it’s going to be a challenge! We appreciate that life is becoming increasingly difficult for everyone, so any donation large or small is very much appreciated. Please help us to support this amazing charity and give hope to families today and in the future.
Since announcing that Easibathe will take on the Coast to Coast challenge, a number of people and companies have been incredibly supportive. We would like to take this opportunity to thank them:
Donations – To all those that have donated towards our fundraiser, we thank you for your generosity and support.
Children’s Cancer North – Thank you to Children’s Cancer North for donating technical t-shirts for the ride. We certainly can’t get lost with how bright they are…but we love them! We’ll be sure to get plenty of photos and send them your way.
Enterprise Flex-E-Rent – Essential to our team is Martin & Denise as our support on the road. Enterprise Flex-E-Rent have been incredibly generous to provide us with a vehicle for the event, so thank you very much. Although, we are hoping we can make it all the way without hitching a lift.
