A team of employees from our Guildford region got on their bikes to cycle from London to Brighton and raised £1,000 in aid of the British Heart Foundation.
The six cyclists joined the 27,000 others who started the 54-mile route at about 7.45am and reached the coast early in the afternoon after battling steep hills, on-the-go repairs and busy traffic.
Taking part from Linden Homes were Terry Elliott, David Evans, David Desson, Jamie Green, Paul McKeown, and Robin Pearmain. They were kitted out with team-branded T-shirts provided free by Aldershot-based Reade Signs.
Terry organised the team and said: “All in all everyone enjoyed the day – the good weather was a bonus – so much so that we were planning next year’s ride just after we crossed the finishing line. There was a great team spirit and a few laughs along the way.”
Linden Homes Guildford managing director Peter Youll said: “Congratulations to Linden Homes’ riders for raising so much for such a good cause and completing a gruelling challenge. The whole office chipped in so it really was a team effort.”
