Four DCi employees completed a 54-mile ride from London to Brighton for charity.
The ride, which The Recycler previously reported on, took place on Sunday 6 September, included a “tough hike” to over 800 feet via the “infamous” Ditchling Beacon along the route. All four employees completed the ride “in less than six hours”, although “there were some difficulties along the way”, such as “punctured tyres and chains coming off, not to mention the post-race aches and pains”.
The ‘Dynamic Peddlers’ were taking part to raise money for the Laura Centre, which is a charity providing “a professional bereavement service to parents whose child has died”, as well as to young people or children who have lost a parent or significant person. Donations so far have reached over £600 ($921/€823), and you can still donate at the fundraising page here.
Fiona Elliott, one of the four riders, commented: “It was a challenge, and going down the hills was definitely more fun than going up! The training paid off though, and we all made it to the finish with big smiles and a great sense of achievement. We would like to thank everyone that has supported us on our journey and helped fundraise for The Laura Centre.”
