Kent cyclist to go the extra mile
Kent cyclist to go the extra mile

Kimberley Cogger begins her final preparations prior to a huge cycling challenge which begins within the next few weeks and has the backing of Gillingham Football Club.

Kimberley will be raising money for the club’s official charity partner, Take Heart Mercy Mission, having been at the annual charity function last year and witnessing what excellent work the doctors and surgeons from the Evelina Children’s Hospital do every year to perform lifesaving heart operations on youngsters in Sri Lanka.

Kimberley will endeavour to take on Britain’s world famous long-distance cycle challenge – Lands End to John O’ Groats.

The aim is to cycle through 23 counties and cover 980 miles from the most south westerly point of Cornwall to the most north easterly tip of Scotland.

This test of endurance will also, hopefully, see Kimberley climb nearly twice the height of Everest whilst cycling up to 118 miles per day.

The challenge will begin on Saturday 8th September and Kimberley is hoping to arrive at John O’Groats on Sunday 16th September.

Kimberley will be pitchside at the Medway Priestfield Stadium on Wednesday August 22 at 4.30pm to promote the ride before making final preparations for her gruelling challenge.

Any small donation would be greatly received, with her JustGiving page available to view via the link below.
