In 11 weeks, 15 tandems will be setting off from Morecambe in Lancashire to cycle the 170 Coast to Coast miles to Bridlington in East Yorkshire, to raise money for Goalball UK.
Each week we will introduce you to 2 of the participants:
Dave always wanted to succeed in sport but his visual impairment held him back, until he discovered Goalball. He plays for Nottinghamshire Sheriffs and in his 1st season (2011/12), he rapidly progressed from Novice to Intermediate to Elite. He is now an established member of the GB Men’s squad and was part of the Gold medal winning team at the European C Championships earlier this year. Outside of goalball, he enjoys football – he is a big Forest fan – plus Egyptology.
Becky has been part of the Goalball UK Development team for 2 years having graduated from Sheffield Hallam University with a degree in Sport Event Management and a Masters in Sport Business Management. She is a qualified referee and coach and recently attended a tournament in Poland with the Great Britain Women’s team. She enjoys all sports and plays Korfball for her local club called Snakebite! She has never been on a tandem before but cycles to work – when the weather is nice!
