About the Frodsham Wheelers D2D “Dawn til Dusk”

D2D gets its name because literally it requires riding from dawn til dusk. This is also the longest day of the year. The ride is 220 miles long and starts in Frodsham at 03.30. This will attract more than 25 riders who will take on this mighty challenge.

Raising Money for Local Charity

After the success of last years event we decided to use this years D2D to raise money for a local charity. Our club is passionate about Frodsham and the wider community, many of whom are members. We want to help others less fortunate than ourselves and our annual D2D bike ride gives us the perfect opportunity to do just that.

There are many local charities we could have chosen and after much deliberation we decided we wanted to raise money for Frodsham Rainbow Club. They provide social and leisure opportunities for people with learning difficulties in the surrounding area and do a fabulous job.

Ride Summary

The route heads up to Liverpool and through the Birkenhead tunnel then through the Welsh lanes passing Flint, St Asaph then breakfast at Llanrwst at 9.00am. Then a long section to Porthmadog and then the next destination is Barmouth which is the furthest point on the ride and where we will enjoy a well earned lunch.

From Barmouth begins the long ride back to Frodsham via Dolgellau, Bala and Corwen before reaching Frodsham at 22.00. Some riders will continue onto Liverpool as this was their starting point. We would love to see some support and encouragement for the riders passing through Frodsham at the finish.

Why not come along and be part of this epic event. There will be regular tweets and post throughout the day giving you live updates.
