A sea of Lycra and shiny bikes descended upon Titan in Great Paxton Cambridgeshie, where the event was hosted. The event saw over 100 people ranging from 14 to 70 years old taking part along with many supporters, organisers and family seeing them off. Whilst snow was threatening in the sky, the turnout for the event was fantastic and enjoyed by all.
The weather was wintery, and the two rides of 60km and 100km were undertaken with all proceeds for the event being donated to Brain Tumour Research. Over £700 was raised for the charity!
The event was the perfect start to the season for many of the clubs riders, many of whom ride competitively. It was also an excellent opportunity to meet some new faces with riders from St Ives, Bedford and Cambridge taking part in the event. Also in attendance was Jacob Hennessey, member of the Great Britain Cycling Team, whom used to be a member at St Neots Cycling Club and also work at Titan as an apprentice.
After the event a display of vintage bikes were on show and the riders enjoyed the hospitality of Titan with hard earned cakes, soup and rolls very much the order of the day.
The cheque was handed over earlier this month to Brain Tumour Research’s representative Hugh Adam (on right in picture) from Ed Porteus-Titan, Ricky Impey – Titan, Mandy McEvoy – Titan, Tom Dunkley – St Neots Cycling Club (Left to right).
Hugh Adam, who is Head of Internal Affairs commented “It is fantastic to have the support of Titan and St Neots Cycling, helping us to fund the fight against brain tumours”
