In 2019, RDB Concepts set themselves a huge charity challenge. A group of amateur cyclists began training with the aim to complete the mammoth 1000 mile ride from Land’s End to John O’Groats in August 2020.
Unfortunately, as you may have noticed, the Covid-19 pandemic hit the UK in March 2020 and what started as a 2-week lockdown suddenly turned into much more.
The event had to be postponed and it wasn’t until January of this year that the team were hopeful enough to set a new date of August 2021. Along the way, they picked up a couple of new team members and ended up with a group of 9 amateur cyclists – some with only a few months to train for the big event.
After several months of hard training and lots (and lots) of cycle talk in the virtual office, the team set off on the event with the support of Sport Tours International. With a lot of hard work, the entire team pulled through and successfully completed their 1000 mile journey over a gruelling 12 days! By the end, £26,000 had been raised for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Congratulations to the 9 cyclists that completed the challenge:
Phill Evans, Hardeep Channa, Kash Hussain, Graham Collinson, Colin Smith, Dave Evans, Mariusz Sznerchu, Mumtaz Ali, Nathan Kennedy
The RDB LEJOG charity event inspired the creation of RDB Cycle which will be launching soon – RDB’s cycling club open to employees, clients, partners and the public. www.rdbcycle.com
