Last year the team of 80 raised a massive £14,500 for Martin House. What an achievement by all.
In total our little UMBR adventure over 7yrs has now raised more than £64k for Martin House, that is all money that has gone to them, not a penny has gone to the running costs of the event.
UMBR 2019 was a little bit smaller than was planned originally but still enjoyed by all that took part
The event has grown so much over the past 7yrs that it was closed very early to entrants for 2019, will 2020 be the same ??
This year we are in partnership with Progeny for a 2nd year. Progeny after their joint involvement last year have very kindly come forward to be the main sole sponsor of our event. Without the fantastic support we are receiving from them I can guarantee that I would be having sleepless nights again.
2020 renews our friendship with Tetley Coaches, we thank them for the support they are showing us this year and potentially look forward to working with them in the future. Tetleys have a long standing relationship with Martin House.
Citroen Leeds, Unite, Danone have again joined our event as supporters, their continued support is very much appreciated.
Distances. Whilst our event has a total distance for the cyclists of 127 miles, the drivers cover around 300 miles over the weekend.
75 cyclists, what could go wrong you may ask. Well to make things a little easier we will again be supplying all the team (cyclists and support cars) with trackers, yes, you will be able to see a live update for the complete weekend of where the team are up to.
The St John Ambulance on hand again, hopefully not having much to do, we know the team can be looked after medically.
2019 – The year of the Electric bike, not 1 but 2. How many will 2020 have, come along and find out.
