DAY 4: Surprise superheroes


The day started with an interview for Radio York and included an unscheduled appearance at a superheroes charity event…there’s never a dull moment on the road with the Beijing Biddies!

Having braved the night without toilets or showers at the campsite, the team relished a little longer in bed that morning to catch up on sleep.

Once on the road they made good progress and stopped off early in the afternoon for lunch at Feast, in Bawtry, near Doncaster, where lattes, flat whites, and cappuccinos were all kindly supplied free. The owner, Jennifer, sat down to find out more about the Beijing Biddies before offering to call local businesses to boost the team’s publicity along their journey. This resulted in an invitation to attend a charity fancy dress party at the nearby Crown Hotel, where the theme was superheroes.

So, dressed in their animal onesies, which had been kindly donated by Zoohood for the challenge, off they went to a party where everyone was thrilled with their unexpected appearance (in every sense of the word!).
