Staff at The Nottingham get ready to fundraise on relay ride
It's that time of the year again when our athletic (some not so athletic) staff don their lycra shorts, warm up their muscles and get ready for a long ride ahead of them.
Yes, it's Bike It 2013 and thirty members of staff have volunteered to cycle over 240 miles, around the East Midlands, to raise awareness and money for Framework, a local homelessness charity.
The riders who will be accompanied by professional cyclists from Team Raleigh, will be pedalling in relay from Worksop, calling at Brigg, Cleethorpes, Skegness, Grantham, Northampton, Market Harborough, Leicester, Shepshed, Loughborough, Ruddington and finally finishing at The Nottingham’s Head Office.
The sponsored ride will be taking place from 9th to 13th September so come along on route to cheer them along.
I f you'd like to sponsor our riders you can visit our Just Giving page, or alternatively, you could buy a raffle ticket from your local branch to help raise cash for the charity and be in with a chance of winning a Raleigh Revenio 1 Road Bike. Raffle tickets cost £1 and are available at all our branches (read the full terms and conditions).
