Sponsored Charity Cycle Ride
By Neil Price, Co-Editor

June 8, 2016: Shebbear College are raising funds for the charity BLISS and the forthcoming Barbados sports trip, eleven pupils, six parents and three staff undertook cycling either 40 or 24 miles along the Tarka Trail recently. Although it was raining when they arrived at Torrington, the sun soon came out and they spent the whole day cycling in sunshine. The 40 mile route was definitely the most popular distance and for many of the pupils this was a real challenge, especially as they were facing a strong headwind for most of the return journey. Unfortunately a few mechanical breakdowns led to a some riders finishing their routes early or in sports teacher Mr Bryan’s case being given a lift for part of the way! All riders enjoyed a well-deserved stop at Fremington Quay before heading back to Torrington. A huge well done to all riders, these distances are a real challenge and they accomplished them brilliantly! Pupil participants: Bridget Astley-Taylor, Archie Boycott, Rivaldo Clarke, Joe Faulkner, Tiggs MacDougall, Hamish MacDougall, Luke Maxa, Tom Nethercott, Dan Shaw, Lewis Whitten and Cameron Young.
