The Skelly 400 was started by Paul Skelly, who was instrumental in setting up this charity and was a valued and much-loved friend to many, not least the Beckenham Rugby Cyclists and Beckenham Rugby Club community. Paul touched many people’s hearts before sadly passing away three years ago far too early.
One of his many legacies is the Skelly 400, a brilliant springboard for your exercise regime in the New Year but definitely not for wimps. The event requires participants to ride 400 miles in January in one of 2 ways:
Grand Fondo : At least 10 miles outdoors every day plus 100 miles on one day in January
Epic: A total of 400 miles in January, achieved in whatever way possible indoors or out, bike or wattbike, regular daily rides or sporadic rides.
It’s a great way to celebrate Skelly’s life and to start your year.
