165-mile cy­cle chal­lenge in their friend’s mem­ory

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - PEOPLE IN PICTURES -

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.

The team are Alan Cam­bridge, Roger Walker, David Dick­e­son, Lee Da­ley, Adam Goul­der and Steve Chat­ten
