Cycle Challenge Wokingham - Viry-Châtillon

83% Raised

The Finchampstead Cruisers Cycling Club completed their epic challenge cycling from Wokingham to Viry Chatillon in just three days! 11 Cyclists ably supported by 2 long-suffering support crew were given a terrific send off by the Mayor and other supporters as they set off from Wokingham Town Centre. Day 1 saw the team ride 70 miles heading south visiting beautiful English towns before catching the overnight ferry to Le Havre. Day 2 and the cyclists were a little apprehensive leaving Le Havre as the weather was warm and the terrain undulating! However "good speed" was achieved despite a 13 mile diversion due to a river ferry being out of service! After a good nights sleep the the final day of the challenge was tackled with the same enthusiasm and motivation as the previous two days despite the obvious tired legs and general soreness! The team made excellent progress and arrived in Viry ahead of schedule. It was a wonderful reception from the Mayor and people of the Town - we were part of a "fun day" which was taking place around the beautiful lake. We were also invited to an "official" reception where gifts were exchanged between the two towns. The Mayor was extremely generous in his praise of the challenge and presented official medals to two of the team! It was a wonderful event and two wonderful charities are benefiting hugely from the challenge...
