On 18 September 2019 our Managing Director, John Staves is heading to the Battlefields of France cycling 326 miles in 4 days helping to raise money in aid of Action Medical Research.
The team will be riding through the leafy lanes of southeast England before crossing the Channel and riding through northern France, tracing some of the region’s most significant World War One & World War Two battle sites touring the national Allied memorials to the French, Canadian, Australian, Indian and British fallen.
The towns of Arras and Saint Quinten also featured heavily during this period. The route finishes in the Glade of the Armistice.
Talking about the upcoming bike ride,
“I said yes to this in February. And then the size of the challenge hit me! I started cycling late February using my mountain bike and got a road bike at Easter. Training is going well – I’ve even started my Lycra journey! Not a pretty sight! Best ride so far 75 miles but with 80+ mile average days back to back, I’ve still got some way to go!”
