Alternative bike riders cross the finish line

Staff at NNO/NNSC Borehamwood managed to complete their Alternative Bike Ride, with some enthusiastic participants along the way.

On Day 2 at 9am Caroline Weightman peddled off from 'Bishops Castle' heading towards 'Redditch'. Then Tim Smith took over and hardly breaking sweat did a remarkable 40km in 45minutes! Then Lois Wheeler representing Guardian Newspapers cycled 30km in 35 minutes.

On Day 3 Sam Vincent got in the saddle, reaching 28km after an hour.  One of the charities to benefit from this event is Great Ormond Street Hospital, where Sam's daughter is receiving treatment.  Having hopped on the bike following a business account meeting Sam found she had to loosen the tension after Ken had been cycling at maximum resistance.

Day 4 saw Jim Sinden get on the bike at 6.50am.  After 12.5 miles he had to take a coffee break and hand over to Lian Shortman who cycled 25 miles while speaking on the phone for the entire time!

Caroline, Edward, Zein, Sarah and Richard Humphries continued cycling in between eating Scones and Jam.

David Hamling took them to the finish line on Day 5, supported by Ken Ingham and Derek Sadler.

In total they raised £401.38 for their chosen charities, from a combination of the bike ride, Scone Sale, Raffle and casual Friday payments.
