Please help us spread the word amongst people who might be interested in any of these items.

If you know anybody, who can’t come to the event but might be interested in an item, you can possibly bid on his / her behalf up to a certain price.
In some cases we can bit on their behalf, if we arrange prior and if we know their intensions are serious. At the end of the day, we want to raise as much money for the items as possible, often items will go below retail value.

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
