I’m so grateful to Ride for Charlie for supporting me in my last youth European MTB Champs.
I had a great time and experience racing at a Junior World Series in Granichen, Switzerland. It was really hot which made for some tough racing conditions.
My month in Europe was an interesting one! It didn’t quite work out as intended but nonetheless it was rich with positivity and experience.
Charlie was a special boy who went to sleep on Friday the 20 January and didn’t wake up, he was 15. He left his family and friends in a state of shock and an incredible hole in our hearts. We miss him more every day.
Our aim is to support young off road cyclists,who are or would have been inspired by Charlie to follow in his pedal strokes. Our vision is to allocate funding to self motivated young individuals, who will be appraised for eligibility by the trustees.
We want to hear from young boys and girls age 14 and above who ride off- road bikes and have been inspired by stories of Charlie and his life.
