Basic PTI mountain bike epic



The Basic PTI Course at RAF Cosford completed the 874 miles on arduous mountain bike trails at Cannock Chase on Sunday 27th September in order to raise money for the Forces Children’s Trust. The team worked in 2 groups simulating a relay, whereby a loop of 7.5 miles was utilised in order to rack up the miles equivalent to the distance of John O’Groats to Lands End.

The team were up early in order to commence the cycle at 8am and by 6.30pm the team had successfully completed the challenge, safe to say by then quads and bums were feeling the effects however a great sense of achievement all round.

The team were very lucky to have great weather and a lot of support from families, friends and the general public who were generously giving donations as the day went on. However even though the team have completed what they set out to achieve, any contributions to our fundraising page are still much greatly appreciated and can be donated online at

Thanks again for your support!
