CLIC24 2006: 22,500 miles ridden and £40,000 raised for charity

The UK's only charity 24hour event happened this weekend, and each year it continues to grow in terms of miles ridden by the riders and the amount of money raised for children's cancer and leukaemia charity CLIC Sargent.

Set on a challenging 10 mile course over the Mendip Hills in Somerset, CLIC24 features over 300m of vertical ascending per lap and the equivalent in exciting downhill singletrack. It's been compared to a cross between a mountain bike race and a garden fete and with live music, all night bonfire party and a weekend of riding in spectacular English countryside, the event is now attracting riders from all over the UK.

The serious side to the event is the big donation that it gives to CLIC Sargent. When all the rider sponsorship has been collected from this year's CLIC24, the total raised by the event will pass £110,000.
