Pedal to Paris
Posted on Thursday, September 6, 2018 by Venn Group — No comments
Huge congratulations to Venn Group Director, Robert Bowyer who completed the Royal British Legion’s Pedal to Paris last weekend alongside six friends from Sevenoaks Rugby Club. Robert had this to say about the ride:
“Setting off from Eltham Palace on Thursday morning, we began the 460km ride to Paris. Over the course of the four days the route took us through the Somme and other points affected by the First World War, notably on what is the 100th anniversary of the end of the war.
We arrived in Paris on Sunday, thankfully in one piece! Riding in aide of the Royal British Legion, we raised £6800.
Thank you to everyone that supported me. Your messages of encouragement helped me to forget about the pain!
I have already signed up for the next adventure and will be cycling to the Hague next April; it’s flatter in Holland!”
