As part of their 150th anniversary celebrations, estate agents, Bagshaws organised the Midsummer Murder 150 mile cycling challenge on 21 June in Derbyshire.
The weather on the day was ideal and riders were neither soaked nor cooked and the winds were largely favourable. During the ride the cycling team thankfully experienced no mechanical issues, no punctures and unlike the Tour de France no one fell off!
The four principal riders were Alastair and James Sneddon, John Rees and Mark Ramsden, who left Bakewell Market at 5.30am. The riders were met at intervals by Lynda Sneddon and Nikki Ramsden and reached Tissington at 10.30pm, having called at the Bagshaws offices to clock up the necessary 150 miles.
The event raised £4,260, which has been matched by a donation from the Bagshaws Partnership to produce a grand total of £8,520.00. The funds will be split between RABI and FCN.
Thanks to everyone who supported this fantastic fundraiser.
The ride in numbers:
10,650 feet of climbing
17 hours including food stops
Funds raised for RABI/FCN: £8,520.00 “
