Lockdown Challenge - 2,000 Miles...COMPLETE

MICA Travels Lockdown Challenge

With lockdown starting we have decided to conduct a lockdown challenge.

The people in the graphic above have taken up the challenge to cumulatively, walk or cycle 2,000 miles in the 27 day lockdown period in the UK (5th November until the 2nd December)

This will be a tough challenge as we are a mixed group of people some with desk jobs and others with very active lifestyles.

Please follow our progress in our blog and donate using the link on the home page!

The Coast to Coast walk

This is a route from Robin hood’s bay on the Yorkshire coast of the North sea through 3 National parks, the North Yorkshire Moors, the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District to St Bees on the Cumbrian coast on the Irish sea totalling 192 miles. The walk will average 14.5 miles a day across barren and wild landscape and take between 12 and 15 days depending on fitness and weather. We shall have support teams providing transfers to and from start and end points and overnight stays. Depending on work commitments, we may need to split the trip up into sections, but it will all be completed from end to end.

The Horseheath to Cambridge Roman Road

Completed - See blog post under "Walking Stories"

This a relatively short walk of around 20 miles following an ancient Roman Road from Horseheath to Cambridge taking in several points of interest at least two pubs! the infamous Gog and Magog hills and Wandlebury ring.

The Lakeland Fells – The Wainwrights

This requires the ascent and decent of all 214 Lakeland fells via 36 routes. Each route will between 5 and 16 miles of exposed terrain walking and climbing between 1650 and 5700 feet. In total we would have walked nearly 500 miles and climbed some 127,000 feet, driven countless miles and spent many nights away from home. No small undertaking, but given time, good health and team spirit we will conquer them all, eventually!
