Matt takes on the Big Bike Challenge

Many of us enjoy a challenge, but few of us will ever take on one quite as demanding as the one that Turners’ driver, Matt, will be completing . Between the 3rd and the 12th of June, Matt will be cycling a total of 850 miles from Newcastle to Southampton as he visits all 20 Premier League Football clubs to raise money for the Saints Foundation in their 2022 Big Bike Challenge.

Although he has been a keen cyclist since he was a child, Matt Headland has never undertaken a challenge quite like this before. It will be the biggest physical challenge he has yet attempted. Matt will be cycling 850 miles in just 9 days in a bid to raise as much money as possible for a charity he feels passionately about—the Saint’s Foundation. This charity, run by the Southampton football club, aims to transform lives in and around Southampton to help  local people to fulfil their potential to become more involved, healthier and empowered members of the community.
