Dan Elliot, the Rock2Recovery RSM Old Soldier, will embark on a solo effort to ride from the old Royal Marine Barracks in Deal, Kent to the port of Zeebrugge in Belgium to raise funds for R2R. This was meant to happen last year but unfortunately due to Covid had to be cancelled.
The ride starts at Deal on the evening of the 22nd of April 2021 to arrive at some point during the afternoon on the 23rd at the Port of Zeebrugge by the bow of HMS Vindictive, the ship made famous during the raid that took place 104 years ago to the day.
The distance, excluding the channel passage, is 104 miles or 166.4Km a lovely coincidence and hopefully a good omen for the ride.
Dan is looking to raise £3000 pounds for Rock2Recovery. The ride, support vehicle and all expenses incurred will be met by Dan, every penny raised goes to R2R.
