Sorry if someone has already posted this but saw the mention of Scotland over on Quidco and had to find out what it was about..ok I'm just nosey!

It was really good to see a story about teenagers doing something so worthwhile when all the press can do is have a go at them and say they're all evil hoodies.

Well done to these lads.

To mark the end of school they want to do something memorable. But rather than party they have decided to ride 20 year old step through mopeds to Scotland from the South coast, raising funds for Great Ormond street hospital along the way. These are not youre shinny reliable new bikes but the old ones from the 70s and 80s with peddles



Maybe going back to School rather than celebrating the end of their exams might be a better option?

Thanks Macdoona For starting this I know theses guys and I think it going to take a long time to get from Eastbourne all the way to Scotland. I have been on the bikes and not 1 goes over 20 mph. Still at 16 they have plenty of time.

Hi well the boys are off. After a hearty breakfast in Eastbourne at 08:00 and meeting with the county's safebike officer who had useful safety stuff, the boys set to the road at 08:30 escorted from the pier by police out riders. First stop the Paddock for cold drinks and pee break before moving on to The Mark cross inn for more cold drinks. Then the long run up to Dartford. This leg was made longer by a Sams Suzuki lacking the power to get him and the tools up any hills so they had to stop to share them out. Next came the over heating plug on the Garelli. A call home soon had dad on the way with new plugs. Dad arrived at Dartford tunnel with spares and ready to escort the boys through the tunnel only to find NO boys. 20 mins later and a couple of phone calls finds them sitting out side Dartford civic centre, "apparently the tunnel is hard to find"! So back on his bike for dad to find them and take them through the tunnel. Once safely in Essex the boys went on their lonely way. to find camping just south of Brentwood. 20:00 had them eating sausage and beans from a tin followed by noodles. Plan is for an early night and then away again with the sun rise.
