Samantha prepares for cycle challenge from London to Amsterdam

Samantha Harrison of Continued Care on the London to Paris Bike Ride for the Yorkshire Cancer Centre 

Pedal power is on the agenda for our Director, Samantha Harrison, as she prepares to take on another epic challenge.

Along with a group of friends, Samantha will be cycling from London to Amsterdam over four days at the end of August.

It's all to raise money for the Yorkshire Cancer Centre, a regional centre which has supported many of our clients as well as our friends and family members being treated for cancer. Samantha has done many fundraising events for the charity over the years, including cycling from London to Paris in 2017.

It was an eventful arrival in Paris on the same day the Tour de France crossed the finishing line. With thousands of people out on the streets, navigating the route was a challenge – and Samantha, a trained nurse, had to give first aid to a fellow cyclist who had come off her bike.

This time, the 300-mile bike ride starts in London and continues to Amsterdam and Bruges. Samantha will be accompanied by her husband Gareth and daughter Amy, along with five friends: Louise Annat from Heaven and Hell Fitness in Harrogate, Andy Roberts, and Jon and Sally Hatchard, along with their 18-year-old son Alec.

Samantha said: "We've all been putting in the training over the last few months and we're now down to the final weeks. It has been hard work, but we know how valuable the work of the Yorkshire Cancer Centre is and raising as much money as possible has helped to keep us motivated.

"We're looking forward to getting started now and hoping for good weather and a smooth trip for all of us."

Donations are welcome for the team’s efforts. To support Samantha and her team-mates visit the Just Giving page at justgiving.com/harrogatespinners.
