What are we doing?
On the 4th August 2019, Team O’Reilly will be cycling 46 miles raising money and awareness for Spinal Research.
At a combined distance of 184 miles, we will have traveled far enough to get a message London to West Flanders in Belgium via bike.
For Sophie, Keiran and Connor this is a big challenge as it’s their first ever sportive. It’s also their first time in years getting back on their bikes to train.
For Kevin (who has completed the 100 miler twice!), this is an even bigger challenge as we will be sticking together for the whole route. He will also have to resist the temptation to leave us all behind!
Whilst Elaine (Managing Podiatrist & Owner of Bexley Podiatry Clinic) will not be taking part, she will be on hand for all Podiatry needs during training and on the day. She has also offered to help with a Team picnic afterwards.
We would love for all of our friends, family, work colleagues, patients of the Bexley Podiatry Clinic and even strangers to donate whatever they can to this wonderful cause. Every donation will spur us on in training and on the day. Thanks!

About Spinal Research
Spinal Research is the UK’s leading charity funding medical research around the world to develop effective treatments for paralysis caused by spinal cord injury. Every year 1,000 people in the UK and Ireland are paralysed following an injury to their spinal cord. We receive no government funding and rely entirely on the support of the public to raise funds for our research. Because of the efforts of our supporters, we have funded innovative medical research that has achieved a number of ground breaking changes in the field.
