On 25 May 2022 Mark Duce and Richard Archer are cycling from Bromsgrove in Worcestershire to Cavriglia, Tuscany, Italy via Spain a Journey of approximately 1200 miles (1900Km) to raise funds for the Staffordshire 2024 Festival.

This is in support of the grants and services provided by the Masonic Charitable Foundation (Masonic Charitable Foundation Festivals & Appeals (

They will be unsupported during the trip and will be camping as much as possible.

Mark and Richard undertook a similar ride in 2019 when they took a more direct route via France and Switzerland (and a few other countries) and when they were ‘much’ younger!

Now both in their 60’ s it is more of a challenge and at the same time an opportunity to raise money for the Masonic Charitable Foundation as part of our participation in the Relief Chest Scheme.

The Pyrenees - They look really steep and full of angry wildlife!

Please help us help them by giving whatever you can. The more people that know about this cause the better, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!

How about some armchair support?

Why not support these two old boys by heading over to the just giving page and pledge some support, which will go to the 2024 Festival?
