Team Chestnut Conquer 103 Mile Bike Ride!
Last Thursday a team of 14 very amateur cyclists from Chestnut Homes took part in the local C2C2C challenge.
The ride started at 7am at Nettleham Rugby Club and saw riders take on the steep hills of the Lincolnshire Wolds to make it to Chapel St Leonards... and then back again! This year riders were lucky enough to cycle in constant drizzle and the odd downpour which led to many punctures and problems as debris was washed into the roads. Our very lucky lad Jack managed to collect 2 punctures along the route!
Marketing Manager Chrissy Dodman who took part in the ride said: "I have only been cycling since I acquired a road bike in March this year. I've been cycling a couple of times a week around the villages near our head office in Langworth. The longest ride I had cycled in training was 33.3 miles. I didn't think I'd be able to complete the whole ride but I didn't find it too bad. The cooler weather definitely helped."
We were very pleased that all our our riders made it back by 6pm in time for a beer and burger! We would like to thank everyone who supported us along the route and those who volunteered and helped out at the feed stations to ensure we had enough jelly beans to keep going.
The C2C2C is organised by local businesses and raised £24,000 for charities Lives, Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance and Men's Sheds.Back To News
