Cycling 7200km around the UK’s coast, building a community against plastic.
This May, Kiko Matthews will set off on her bike to cycle the coast of the UK, including Northern Ireland. She’ll be joined by volunteer riders from companies including Rathbones and bike specialists, Pinarello. On most evenings of the challenge, she will also complete a local beach clean. The focus for this project is not to be the fastest, but to raise awareness of the problem of single-use plastic and engage communities to help tackle it.
Kiko will arrive on Spittal beach on Monday 15th July and you can join the beach clean from 5:30pm-7:30pm. Meet at the Family Fun Centre car park at 5.30pm. Equipment will be provided, but bring gloves!
Before you head out, double check the weather forecast and make sure you dress appropriately. In particular, we recommend sturdy, closed shoes (no exposed toes!) and some thick gardening gloves to protect your hands.
In partnership with Coast Care Northumberland.
