Charity Bike Ride 2015 – Update!
Total miles: 117.69
Average speed: 12.5 mph
Max speed: 39.5mph
Total riding time: 9 hours 24 mins
We are pleased to say that Andrew, Ian, John & Ken completed the bike ride last week.
They cycled Stage 1 of the Tour de France 2014, from Leeds to Harrogate, a distance of approximately 200km in aid of St. Oswald’s Hospice.
They set off at 6am in cold and windy conditions and completed just before 6pm. It was completed almost without incident – there was a 2 rider collision so there are some tender parts but all dentists were back in surgery at 8.30am the next day!
The practice were selling coffee & cake on the day and, with a tombola and generous donations from our patients, raised £185 on the day alone. Our total currently stands at £1100.
We are still welcoming any donations, money or charity bags, for the next couple of weeks.
