Two Bridges (2004)
|TOWER BRIDGE (London)
TRENT BRIDGE (Nottingham)
Two bridges, 160 miles apart, seven bikes, seven riders, 3 punctures, 3 support vehicles & no sense of direction.
The Perfect recipe for a 160 Mile Bike Ride..?
|Calverton Colts Football Club are this week enjoying the results of several months of planning for their annual Bike Ride marathon which this year covered 160 Miles from Tower Bridge London to Trent Bridge Nottingham.|
|Seven riders & three support team members covered the distance over 2 days.|
|The ride did not go exactly to plan. A late departure from London due to traffic and an unintended detour adding another hour and several miles to the first days journey.|
|The second day however went exactly to schedule with the riders arriving at Trent Bridge at 5.00pm.|
|The team went on to ride back to the club's home ground at Calverton Miners Welfare, receiving a warm welcome on the Sunday evening.|
|The event, which included an auction of football memorabilia, raised a record £7,500 for the Club. The Club would like to extend its gratitude to the main sponsors; Cowens Insurance, Cheshire Engraving & Sports & Landscape Design and everyone who purchased sponsor tickets.|
The team would also like to thank everyone for the ‘welcome home’, which made the whole experience worthwhile.
