At 10am on Wednesday, 27 June, 19 brave friends gathered outside Harrods. Slightly restless and clad in matching lycra, they were about to set off on a mission: to cycle the 300 miles to central Amsterdam in aid of Starlight.
Just three and a half days, multiple severe tan lines later … all of these amateur cyclists arrived fit and well in Amsterdam!! Despite one seriously impaired bicycle and an all night trip to a hospital, the lads cycled up to Amsterdam Centraal station in good spirits and are even discussing the possibility of doing another epic ride to Bilbao!
Not only was this a magnificent physical achievement, but this proactive group have managed to raise a fantastic sum of money for Starlight, which early estimates place at £20,000!! This is a truly spectacular amount and will transform the lives of many seriously and terminally ill children. On behalf of everyone at Starlight a HUGE thank you goes out to all of the riders and everyone who hs supported them.
