Getting ready for the charity cycle ride
We’re training hard to make sure we’re ready for the looong and gruelling, 54 mile London to Brighton charity cycle ride in aid of the British Heart Foundation. The Ryemead team comprises Steve Hughes, Bobby Traynor, Grant Robson and Ben Ashby. It’s the first time that we’ve done this ride and we’re looking forward to it with feelings of excitement and of course apprehension!
All four of us are keen footballers, Steve and Bobby are ex-professional footballers (Brentford FC), and very competitive. So even though the Ryemead Team are keen amateur cyclists, it’s a major challenge. But with the four of us all wanting to finish first there will be lots of competitive ‘banter’, the odd professional bit of ‘jostling’ for position, but all for a great cause!
Please support us either by making a donation here, using the button below, by cheering us along the way or at the finish line. You’ll be able to easily spot us as we’ll be sporting Ryemead branded shirts!
British Heart Foundation Charity
We are raising money for the British Heart Foundation’s research on this charity cycle ride and we would be so grateful for your support. The London to Brighton Bike Ride is the British Heart Foundation’s flagship event covering 54 miles from Clapham Common to the Brighton Seafront. It passes through the Sussex countryside, Turners Hill and Ditchling Beacon. finishing with a celebratory party at the BHF’s Beach Village. The BHF has helped halve the number of people dying from heart and circulatory disease in the UK but sadly every day hundreds of people lose their lives. It’s only thanks to support from people like us that the BHF can create new treatments and discover new cures. £24 could pay for two hours of research by an early career scientist, but every pound helps so please give what you can to help me hit our target. Thanks so much!
