Cyclists prepare for London to Brussels charity bike trip

At the end of last year's Coast to Coast charity ride
Published on: 19th April 2018

Fundraising has started for the annual Sanderson Weatherall charity bike ride, which this year sees 20 property professionals from across our offices undertaking a demanding 200-mile route from London to Brussels.

The bike ride has become something of a tradition at Sanderson Weatherall, having taken place for the last 13 years, raising thousands of pounds for incredibly worthy causes in the process.

This year, the team will be cycling in support of Marie Curie, UK charity that provide care and support to people living with terminal illness, and their families, bringing light in their darkest hours.

The proposed route sees the team set off from London on Thursday 5th July, making their way South East to Canterbury where they will spend the first night. After an early start to get to Dover for the cross-channel ferry to Dunkirk the team will head to the cobbled streets of Bruges where they spend their second night. Saturday morning and it’s a dash for the finish line with 60 miles of cycling to get to their final destination and capital of Belgium, Brussels.

Any donations would be gratefully appreciated for this worthy cause, if you wish to donate then please follow this link to their Just Giving fundraising page.

The 2018 SW team comprises Adam Burkinshaw, Aidan King, Charlotte Marshall, Christian Humphreys, Dan Matthews, Dan Pugh, George Williams, Harry Naylor, Ian Bell, Jess Burke, Josh Peacock, Lawrence Pinder. Liz McLoughlin, Lydia Martin, Max Rusby, Morigan Wilson, Nick Heap, Nick Vincent, Richard Dunn and Simon Heather.

Cyclists complete coast to coast charity bike ride

18 property professionals from across our office network have completed a charity cycle ride from Walney Island on the west coast, across to Whitby on the East coast. The 180 mile ride was completed in just three days in support of Core, a UK based charity that helps fight a range of digestive conditions. About the ride: This is the second time the firm have undertaken the W2W – the first time being in 2009 – when we opted for the shorter and slightly easier Wearside ending. This time, the group chose to do the alternative Whitby end to the route.

18 property professionals from across our office network have completed a charity cycle ride from Walney Island on the west coast, across to Whitby on the East coast.

The 180 mile ride was completed in just three days in support of Core, a UK based charity that helps fight a range of digestive conditions.

About the ride:

This is the second time the firm have undertaken the W2W – the first time being in 2009 – when we opted for the shorter and slightly easier Wearside ending. This time, the group chose to do the alternative Whitby end to the route.

[fulltext] =>

The first day’s riding was a bit of a shock to the system, as it is far tougher than many of the group were prepared and the climb up 'Bigland', a plateaued outcrop just before Cartmel, almost had a few of the group chucking the towel in early! After that, the route settled down a bit, which made for a very pleasant and scenic trip through Grange and onto Levens. We stayed the night at a funky bunkhouse called ‘Lumley Fee’ which is owned and run by the Wheatsheaf pub in Brigsteer, just a mile or so north of Levens and so slightly off the route.

At the start of Day 2, most of the riders got back to the route fairly easily by heading east from Brigsteer, down the hill and crossing the A591 – picking it up at Natland (although some of the purists re-joined at Levens so as to ensure none of the official route was missed out!). The weather brightened and a few blue gaps in the clouds started to appear. This was the day everyone has been bracing themselves for - about 70 undulating miles and the ascent of Tan Hill before tea. We took in a short, mid-day stop at the Chocolate Shop in Orton, and had lunch at Kirby Stephen. The actual ascent of Tan Hill is quite unusual – as it's not particularly steep - just circa 7 miles of energy-sapping incline. The bonus of reaching the top is, of course the free wheel down towards Barnard Castle - which those in the group on a mountain bike particularly enjoyed although those on road bikes were left a little bit shaken-up.

For the start of Day 3 the weather was good, with plenty of blue sky and the wind to our backs. The terrain for the first part of the day is far less hilly than the previous two so the group moved at a good pace through the pretty countryside and villages of Teesside, stopping off for refreshments in Hutton Rudby and Great Ayton. After this things changed as we hit the North Yorks Moors, as you would expect there is a fair amount of steady climbing, but this seemed all too-cheaply given away in rapid down-hill bits. As such, the up/down/up/down nature becomes very noticeable and tiring. This continues almost all the way to Whitby – so the average pace over the last 25 miles or so dropped considerably from what we had been doing earlier in the day. Nevertheless, the entire group successfully reached the Whitby ending, with various levels of relief, to dip their wheels in the North Sea and gorge themselves on Fish & Chips.

Nicki Hood, fundraising manager at Core commented, “We are so touched that the Sanderson Weatherall team chose Core to benefit from their Big Bike Ride for charity this year. Your generosity helps us spread the word that if your gut works, life works, and we should never take this for granted! Thank you so much for joining the driving force for research into gut health, and ultimately getting answers for families who so desperately need them.” 

Simon Heather, partner in our Manchester office and organiser of the annual trip said, “This year’s ride was amongst the toughest that we had done, with a number of challenging hills dotted throughout. As always we were absolutely delighted to have completed the trip as a team, at the end of the day it’s about grouping together and helping each other across the finish line. On behalf of the team, I would like to say thank you to everyone that has donated as the support that we received really does make all the hard work worthwhile.”

The team’s fantastic efforts have already raised over £2,500 but they would like to push on and try to reach a fundraising target of £3,000. There is still time for you to donate and you can do so via our JustGiving page: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/sw2017.

About the Ride

 

Setting off from SW’s office on Great Titchfield Street, Fitzrovia, the team struggled through the hectic London traffic on what turned out to be a whistle-stop tour of the capital’s major attractions – passing Trafalgar Square, 10 Downing Street, the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, Tower Bridge and the Tate Modern - before joining Sustrans route 21 at Greenwich for the 90 or so mile journey south.  A strong headwind; the odd mechanical malfunction; a team record number of punctures; and news of left luggage in Leeds, tested the team’s spirit to its limit – a veritable text-book exercise in crisis management and disaster recovery!   However, the encountered difficulties only served to galvanise the unity of the team further, as they pushed their way over the North and then South Downs before arriving to catch the 11.00pm ferry at Newhaven, on England’s south coast.


The team’s overnight ferry docked at Dieppe at 5.00am (French time), just in time for the dawn of the day.  Devoid of any meaningful sleep, all were relieved that the riding for Day 2 was to be only circa 30 miles or so, along the Avenue Verte – a converted former railway that has been incorporated into the green cycleway linking London with Paris – which meant a steady section of riding without any more significant hills to contend with!  After a morale boosting breakfast stop in Neufchâtel-en-Bray, the team arrived at the destination for their overnight stay in Forges-les-Eaux early in the afternoon for a well-deserved rest and a taste of ‘home-cooked’ Normandy cuisine.


The weather gods well and truly smiled upon Team SW for Day 3 - as the winds of change powered them through the beautiful rolling French countryside and picturesque towns & villages towards the outskirts of Paris in bright and sunny conditions, where the welcoming and attentive staff of the Campanile at Villennes-sur-Seine ensured the team were comfortably fed, rested and entertained.  The mood in the camp was now well and truly upbeat, as Team SW looked forward to the following day’s ride into Paris with a forecast of further bright and sunny conditions.


The final morning involved a relatively short ride of just under 30 miles of well surfaced forest paths through the outskirts of Paris, using the Bois de Boulogne and other Royal Forests, through the leafy suburbs and boulevards of Paris, before finally arriving at the Eiffel Tower – where the team instantly became a photographic sensation with the hordes of International tourists.


Simon Heather, Partner in the Manchester office, and organiser of this year’s trip said: “After a particularly tough first day, we are absolutely delighted to have completed the trip as a team, all in one piece…and with all our luggage! The funds we have raised will be gratefully received by this year’s chosen charity. On behalf of the team, I would like to say ‘thank you’ to everyone that has donated as this support really does make all the hard work worthwhile.”
