Big Give Trike Challenge accomplished

Trike Challenge 1st lap
Finishing the first 12mile lap from the Sun to Pluto and back

We’re very proud of our Recycling Team who challenged themselves to cycle 135 miles on their two tricycles (Clicky and Twisty) on Saturday 24th November along the Sustrans Solar System route. This is the average distance all four of our vehicles (including electric Doris and Edith) cover each week so doing it with few gears in just one day was interesting. Other staff members, including inexperienced trike riders Mark (see Mark’s first trike ride below) and Ivana, got involved too to help raise funds as part of the Big Give Christmas Challenge.

In the end it took five lots of riders ten hours to cycle 145.8 miles between them. Together we raised almost £1,000 which will get doubled thanks to the Garfield Weston Foundation. Big thanks to all those who supported our efforts, cheered us on and donated in advance! See more pictures from the day below.
