NMBS JoGs the distance


Staff from buying society NMBS have successfully completed a charity bike ride from one end of the country to the other – without ever having to get cold or wet – and raised over £300 for a number of worthy causes.
Dubbed the NMBS Le Jog Challenge, the ride saw team members from across the group cycle a minimum of 837 miles on an exercise bike located at NMBS’ head offices in Leicester. 
This the same distance as riding from Land’s End to John O’Groats.
Some 24 volunteers took part including managing director, Chris Hayward and finance director, Julie Langford. The volunteer riders each took turns in the saddle during their lunch breaks as well as before and after work. 
All of the riders were sponsored by friends, family and colleagues. 
NMBS has donated the monies raised by the Le Jog challenge to a number of charities. This includes CRASH, Cancer Research UK, Brain Tumour Research, Alzheimer’s Research and Diabetes UK.
