Wobbley Wheelers Set Off For A 400-Mile Charity Ride to France
It is a ride they will never forget – a 400-mile cycle beginning at Minety Primary School to Moet (Epernay, France). Fully clad in Lycra, the five members of the Wobbly Wheelers, a group of friends and local businessmen decided to take on a massive challenge that has raised an incredible £14K for Winston’s Wish, Parkinson’s UK, United Foundation, and Minety Primary School. The group who usually only rides 10-12 miles went full out and completed 400 miles in, get this, four days!
toinfinity Managing Director, Al Keck among friends and local businessman, Ralph Wells, Director of WBM Commercial Property Ltd., both based in the Swindon area, focused their fundraising efforts in the local area, while Joe Lister, Tim Vaughan and Matt Bray fundraising efforts were made further afield. The Wobbly Wheelers would like to thank all those in the local business community and further afield who donated and supported the team.
Managing Director, Al Keck, commented: “It was a once in a lifetime experience that we plan to continue annually and turn it into a tradition while setting further and further destination points. We really have a fantastic team of guys, a true comradery. It was very challenging, mentally and physically, but remembering the purpose and knowing the amount of fundraising we were able to achieve made the pain and suffering fade into insignificance.”
