Story

ESCAPE FROM COLDITZ

Blind Dave along with his crack team of escape artists will break out of Colditz Castle, famous as a POW camp during World War 11 on 19th April 2020. The castle, although considered a high security prison had one of the greatest records of successful escape attempts!   So escaping the castle isn't really the challenge …. 

The hard part will be the following 7 days of gruelling cycling through the mountainous German countryside, tracing the river Rhine, then through the Netherlands to the ferry at the Hook Van Holland.

Once back in the UK, the team travel from Harwich to Peterborough then onto Meriden and Pertemps Head Office, where other cyclists will join them and visit the National Cyclist Memorial to remember those fallen in World War 1, then onwards to the home of our beloved Baggies, finishing on 25th April.

April 2020 marks 75 years since the formidable Colditz castle was liberated, so in recognition, Team Blind Dave are aiming to raise £75,000 to support the Albion Foundation.
