In these uncertain times we are living in, never have special occasions stood out more in the last 70 years than right now.  With many people in the world not being able to spend time with their children, and others blessed to see more of our children’s childhood than we ever would have been able to before, being a parent is very much at the forefront.


When the opportunity arose to reconnect the Clague Team, Chris decided that his son, Oscar, 10, the middle child of three, the eldest being Isabelle, 12, and the youngest Harry, 6, should join him on this journey having received a new bike for his 10th birthday.

And so, the Father-Son duo got kitted out, and with a bottle of water hooked on their bikes, began their 13mile journey to Birchington together.

The pair picked up where Lottie left off at Ickham Court Farm, making their way  past Stodmarsh National Nature Reserve, past Chislet, Hawthorn and Hillborough, to arrive at the historical village of Reculver to finally lead their way to the edge of Birchington to pass the baton.


This is the longest ride Oscar has ever done, which has without a doubt left a very proud Dad, and there is no better reward as a Father to see our children succeed.


Please acknowledge the efforts of this relationship, and all the Father’s out there,  by donating to our Charity of the Year, the Pilgrims Hospice.  Donations can be made on the following link

After a heart-warming ride between a Father and his Son, let us remember this, ‘By the time a man realises that maybe his Father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he’s wrong’ (Charles Wadsworth)

With the boys home from their trip to Birchington, let the baton pass to Owen Derby, who makes his way back towards Canterbury for leg number 9 for Clague Reconnect and the Pilgrims Hospice.
