165-mile cycle challenge in their friend’s memory
TEAM of cyclists set out on the hottest day of the year for a 165-mile bike ride in memory of a friend.
The cyclists from the engineering company, Peacock House, Bell Lane in Little Chalfont took to their bikes to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. Their friend Pete Kerley lost his battle with cancer last year.
The band of bikers cycled to Retford in Nottinghamshire, where Pete was from, from July 1 to 4.
Director of Peacock Engineering and one of the cycle team, Alan Cambridge, said: “We wanted to do something special in memory of Pete. So, we set ourselves the cycle challenge and we have all been putting in the hours to train for it over the past few months. I have to say that we were both excited and nervous about what lay ahead but we were determined to succeed.”
Mr Kerley had worked for IBM, which is a contact of Peacock House.
The team are aiming to raise £6,000 for the charity.
