Giles Evans

In 2010 Giles decided to organise a charity bike ride from Newcastle (Toon) to his home town of Llanelle (Town), after he lost a close family friend to cancer. Giles covered the 420 mile route alone over a 5 day period. With help from Giles' friend and BBBR participant Tim, the Toon to Town challenge was born. Each year, both the number of riders and the mileage have increased. In July 2015 Giles undertook the 450 mile challenge only 3 weeks after completing the 450mile North Hero Ride from Edinburgh. In the 5 years since his maiden ride up to the final challenge in 2015, Giles' Toon to Town has raised £50,000 for H4H.
