Our cycling team will be taking part in the ‘£1 million Extra-mile challenge’ from 21st to 23rd September. This is a 500-plus mile team cycling relay from Luxembourg, through Germany, back to Luxembourg then finishing in France. Our enthusiastic cyclists this year have been drawn from our Winchester and Bedford offices and are Doug Alcock, Jason Daniels, Mark Craven and Julian Marshall.
The first day starts from Luxembourg City touring in a circular route along rolling hills and glorious countryside in to neighbouring Germany and back. On day 2 we head south-west through the Champagne vineyards to the regional capital Reims. Our final day of the Challenge ends at the gates of the magnificent Palais de Versailles, just 10 miles from Paris. Details of the challenge can be found at the following link: http://www.extra-mile.org.uk/SignUp.aspx.
In the past we have raised in the region of £8,500 to date for our selected charities, and are hoping to raise a further £1,500 this year, and will be raising money for Bedford Hospitals Charity.
