Tilnar Art is hugely proud and excited to be able to announce the launch of the Tilnar Cycle Challenge. The Challenge is an annual cycling endurance event set on a single day of the year, 20th June 2015. The aim is to ride as many miles as possible within a 15 hour time frame (6am - 9pm).
For some it will be a chance to compare their cycling endurance on their own local roads to all other participants on one day each year. Participants can choose to start and finish anytime within the time limits and they choose their own route.
The Tilnar Cycle Challenge was the idea of the company's Managing Director, Tom Hawes. As a keen road cyclist, he wanted the challenge of seeing how far he could cycle in one day each year. When Tom mentioned it with his local cycling group, they loved the idea and so the Tilnar Cycle Challenge was born. The premise is very simple - How many miles can you ride in one day? It doesn't matter whether your aim will be to ride 10 or 100 miles, everyone can enter and it is your own personal challenge.
Tom wanted the Tilnar Cycle Challenge to raise money for charity and he wanted it to help some of those areas from where Tilnar Art buys products. So, in its first year, Tom wanted £9 of all £12.95 entry fees to go straight to Porridge and Rice, a charity supporting children from the slums in Nairobi.
