On Sunday 11th April three of our brave bikers did us proud by completing a gruelling 40 mile bike ride in aid of the children’s bereavement charity, the Noah’s Ark Trust Worcester.
The Cruisy Ride as it was deceptively called, was devised as a fun event to encourage families and corporate participants to appreciate the joys of cycling around the beautiful, undulating Teme Valley countryside. The fundraising challenge was split into three options to include family cycling, ten mile and forty mile routes, depending on participants’ level of fitness and stamina.
Our hardcore team, who are notoriously fit and competitive, comprising Ed Moseley, Guy Mucklow and Tom Gurney obviously did the 40 mile trip which was not meant for the faint hearted.
Arriving in literally minutes of each other Ed broke through the finishing line first closely followed by Tom with Guy a tiny way behind them both (in my experience it’s always advisable to let the MD win).
The event raised £1,500 and our boys did us proud contributing £200 towards the overall funds raised. Well done to all three.
Noah’s Ark offers bereavement support in the form of counselling for young people, children and their families after the death of a mum, dad or someone close.
Like most of the charity events we like to participate in, we ended up at the local pub, where our three biking heroes, saddle sore and exhausted, were sufficiently hydrated with beer and nourished with burgers and sausages.
