Team work makes the dream work bike ride photo

PCB team work makes the dream work!

We arrived at the one big bike ride Sunday 29th April all eager and ready to do battle with the horrendous wind & rain. But most of the route was cancelled, with Loros only marshalling the 7 mile route. The cancellation was due to flooding along certain sections of the track but after all the preparation we decided to ride the full 18 mile course anyway.

After 2½ hours, trudging through mud, huge puddles, streams of water, relentless rain, biting gale force winds and all riders being soaked to the core, the “endurance test” was completed by all. Proving “team work makes the dream work”, with us all bonding a little more. We’d have heading back to a pub for a post ride anaylsis, but we all just needed to head home so we could get into some dry clothes.

With donations from employees, employers, members of the public and the odd traveling salesman popping into the office we raised over £260. Well worth the soaking we all got. Thank you to all that contributed! We all hope to do something similar in the near future (hopefully staying dry this time).

Loros provide free, high-quality, compassionate care and support to terminally ill adult patients, their family and carers across Leicestershire & Rutland. You can always donate to Loros from here. Fancy trying a Loros event yourself? They organise lots of different event over the year, you can find out more information here.
