7-year old Adam Pettifer fundraiser


7 year old Adam My 7 year old son, Adam and I rode out out for a weekend of riding in the Peak District, UK. Aside from the challenge and adventure, he took the opportunity to raise money for wheels4life after receiving a new bike for his birthday.

He carried all of his own kit for the overnight stay and he did a great job even on the hills of the Tissington Trail. Day two saw amazing weather and fantastic views as we headed down the High Peak Trail with several well earned ice cream stops.

Friends and family donated $305 and we had a amazing time and are already thinking of the next challenge!    Andy Pettifer
