Cyclists complete Norwich to London ride for British Heart Foundation

Engineers at a city firm pedalled 125 miles this weekend to raise money for two charities.

The workers from Clancy Consultancy, on Queens Road, cycled from their Norwich office to London in two days.

The ride was celebrating the company's 40th birthday, while raising cash for the British Heart Foundation (BHF) and RedR – a charity which trains relief workers to go into disaster zones.

Engineer Greg Scott, 45, completed the ride with his twin children, Ben and Holly, both aged 14, and his colleague Jerome Boisbluche, 28.

The four cyclists left on Saturday morning heading for Bury St Edmunds, before powering on to Harlow, Enfield and Holborn – the home of their London office.

Mr Scott said: 'It went brilliantly. We got lost a few times, but it was really good and the weather stayed clear.

'We have been training since January, but none of us has done long distance rides before.'

The four cyclists were followed by a support vehicle carrying spare tyres and equipment.

The ride was the first leg of nine in the engineers' bike rides.

Staff from each office in the country will complete rides over the next six weeks, linking the nine offices.

So far, over �5,000 has been raised for the BHF and RedR.
