Cyclists ride to frontline
Sixty cyclists stopped off in Boughton Aluph on Monday of last week to take a break from their 375-mile Wheels on the Western Front bike challenge.
The five-day cycle ride was held in aid of ABF (Army Benevolent Fund) The Soldiers’ Charity and marked the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War.
The route took the team from London, through Kent, across the Channel to Calais, where they followed the Great War frontline all the way to Compiegne, near Paris, where the Armistice was finally signed in 1918.
