Ipswich Dad to Attempt 200 Mile, One Day Bike Ride Challenge

The Ipswich School Founding Futures Bursary Fund helps pupils, regardless of the family's financial circumstances attend the School. Presently, five Ukrainian students are at Ipswich School supported by the Founding Futures Bursary Fund.

Phil will start his challenge on 11th June with four fellow members of Framlingham Cycling Club, the group aim to complete the 200 mile route in the one day. They plan to start peddling at 5am with a cut off time of around 10pm. The route starts in Great Yarmouth, heads south through Bungay, across through Thetford, north through King’s Lynn and then around the Norfolk coast from Hunstanton all the way around and back to Great Yarmouth.

Phil said, "I am now well into my training, with my longest ride to date on Sunday 21st May as part of the fantastic Suffolk Sunrise event, which was an opportunity to ride 125 miles in the lovely Suffolk countryside. With just a few weeks to go I am aiming to do one longer ride up to the Norfolk Coast, from my home in Woodbridge, before easing off so I am rested for the big day."

"I really enjoy taking on personal challenges and it would be fantastic to raise funds for such a worthwhile cause as the Ipswich School Founding Futures Fund and its Ukrainian students. I’d be delighted if OIs could contribute to my Justgiving page."
