On the 18th of June, Jamie Davies and Brychan Tudor will be cycling to Anglesey from Cardiff; a total of 271 Miles in 5 days.
All details of the project and what they're raising money for are posted below and on the Sponsume Sponsor site.
Brychan said - "I should add that we have not been in training and are very concerned about the outcome (one of us more than the other!). Thanks very much for your support, no matter how modest."

What They Intend To Do
On 18/06/2012, Creative Assault Art Production Organisation Directors Jamie Davies & Brychan Tudor will be cycling from Cardiff to Anglesey, a total of 271 Miles in 5 days! They hope to raise £300, which will go towards paying artists fees and expenses in the projects that CAAPO commissions. Any funds raised in addition of this figure will be donated to a local cancer charity.
Any Donation of £5 or over will automatically entitle you to a special thank you in their 'Dystopia: Are We Nearly There Yet?' publication; marking the end of a series of events that have taken place over the last 12 months. Any donation of £10 or over will receive a mention in the publication and a signed A3 deluxe-print from CAAPO's Dystopia Series.
All funds raised and details of any donations will be announced on their website - www.creativeassault.org - and through the twitter account @CAAPOGermanBite.
Although they are supported by the Arts Council of Wales, they have a responsibility to raise a large portion of their project budgets through private and public sponsorship and through sales of their publications.
On 17/03/2012, CAAPO commissioned two new public artworks to take place in Cardiff City Centre in amongst an audience of over 100,000 people. These 'Moving Sculpture' commissions were awarded to Spazi Docili (Florence-based Public Art Organisation) and Laurence Payot (French Liverpool-based Public Artist). Events such as these are only made possible through the support of the Arts Council and the wider community.
Jamie and Brychan will be stopping off at various places en route next week to make impromptu art works. Culture Colony is looking forward to seeing them on Wednesday at MOMA Wales in Machynlleth to make a record of their journey at its mid point.
This is better than the Olympic Torch Marathon, go to CAAPO's web site, see the route and get out there to support something that benefits the arts in Wales rather than takes funding away from it.
