THIS crazy lot have just cycled 1,200km all the way to the Costa del Sol from the UK.

The eight-strong Mad English Cycling Team, who set off on October 16 from St Albans, raised a mammoth €40,000 for the Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospice and Grove House Hospice.

“It was a cold, wet and dangerous last day’s ride, but we send a big thank you to everyone for their support and kindness,” said rider and organiser Dan Rowe, 33, who lives in San Pedro.

Here they are at K bar in La Heredia, where they were greeted warmly when they arrived.



  1. Are you sure it’s only 1200km from St.Albans- Andalucia? 1200km is nothing for fit cyclists. Fit amateur cyclists will do 200km + training in a day. I used to do 3000km cycle camping around France.

    Shame I did’nt know about this charity ride, can you provide and address so I can send a kite.

    Chapeaux to all the riders.
