Wyatt's Road 2 Rockstock 2
In 2016 Wyatt cycled 1000 miles in just under a week and raised over £70,000 for charity visiting various “rock” themed landmarks and venues along the way for “Road 2 Rockstock”
3 years later Wyatt has come up with the stupidity that is... The Road 2 Rockstock 2! This time he'll be going twice as far - covering 2000 miles in 2 weeks, visiting landmarks and famous music venues on the way, whilst averaging 135 miles a day for 15 consecutive days. "Why?!" we hear you cry. Well, the aim is to hopefully raise £75,000 for Mind, the national mental health charity.
If you'd like to, you can sponsor Wyatt and donate to Mind via JustGiving!
You can also buy a commemorative t-shirt with proceeds going to Mind.
Like in 2016, Wyatt will start from our central London studios (on Friday November 22nd) and finish at Rockstock on Friday 6th December.
