A group of four dedicated cyclists from Hampshire recently travelled to Normandy, France, to take on a gruelling three day, 230 mile round bike ride, across the region, to raise funds for leading disability charity Enham Trust.
Beginning and ending in Ouistreham, Calvados, via Bagnoles de l’orne, Orne and the Normandy island of Le Mont Saint Michel, the group, including Enham Trust Trustee Andy Litton, cycled for a total of 18 hours across three days, averaging a speed of 12.6mph.
Trustee Andy Litton reflected following the challenge “Apart from being really hard work it was great fun; a good group of lads, much laughter, great roads, excellent hotels, decent food and lovely French hospitality. All in all, a brilliant experience in aid of a fantastic cause and we’d all do again!”
So far, the challenge has raised almost £1,500 for the charity and will contribute towards the charity’s tireless work – supporting over 7,500 disabled and disadvantaged people across the country to live the lives they choose; gaining greater independence in every aspect of their lives.
Enham Trust now has places available for the London to Paris bike ride on 20th July 2016. For more information and to book your place, please visit: www.enhamtrust.org.uk.
