Twelve employees from Wolseley UK workers are taking to two wheels to ride the The Way of the Roses cycle path in aid of local charities next month.
The riders, from the Ripon offices and Melmerby warehouse will be taking part in the 170 mile Morecombe to Bridlington coast-to-coast route next month.
They hope to raise money for Sport Relief, Scuba Diving For All and Saint Michael’s Hospice. All money raised will be split between the charities.
Organiser, Mujtaba Abbas from Ripon said: “We are all quite keen cyclists and normally tackling the coast to coast wouldn’t be too taxing for us but to do it in March when the weather could be anything between 20deg and -15deg certainly gives the challenge more of an edge!”
The riders are still looking for sponsorship, no matter how small; the online giving page is at www.charitygiving.co.uk/WUKC2C
