LSPC Wheelies Make it to Brighton to Help the British Heart Foundation
The LSPC Wheelies made it to Brighton in one piece and were fortunate enough to suffer only a few sore muscles and bit of sun and windburn.
It was a tough but thrilling ride with steep down-hills and many sharp turns and a number of tiring walks pushing the bikes up narrow country lanes.
When energy levels were running low the cheers from bystanders and the thought of colleagues waiting at the finishing line with a well-deserved drink kept the team going. And when the rain and hail poured down, it was actually quite refreshing. A couple in the team completed the 54 miles in the rather quick time of 3 hours and 40 minutes and the rest trickled in over the next three hours. Click here to learn more about the work of the BHF.
