Nello Bike Ride – Update5th July 2018
They did it – the Gilbert Stephens Nello Bike Ride team completed their challenge on 24th June. Some cycled 55 miles and some 100 – whatever the distance we are very proud of them. A lot of time was put into training for this event and in doing so they have raised over £2000 for Force Cancer Charity!
Don Middlemost was head trainer and motivator, he did an excellent job in helping prepare the team and encouraging them with their training. Don said “We all took time off on Sunday mornings to tackle the roads and hills of the Devon countryside, sometimes in trying conditions, for what turned out to be a rewarding experience for a great cause.”
Dana Mulligan was ecstatic to have completed in one piece, having fallen off her bike when she first picked it up! “Thanks for all the donations and support. Since volunteering to take part in the Nello charity bike ride I have spoken to so many people whose lives have been touched by cancer and it has been overwhelming to hear the outstanding service Force provide. You can still donate here
I am sure you will join us in congratulating all those who took part – a fantastic effort by every one of them.
