For most people a charity bike ride will involve a little training followed by a hard day in the saddle. For the Print-Rite Europe team the ordeal will last a little longer…but then we are heading for China!
Yes, we’re crossing oceans and continents to reach our destination – the headquarters of Print-Rite in Zhuhai – 5,944 miles away. But despite the magnitude of the challenge we won’t be worrying about air transfers, visas, carrying luggage or mechanical breakdowns (although there could be a few of the physical variety!) – because our ‘journey’ will be undertaken aboard exercise bikes in the Print-Rite Europe reception at Amber Drive, Langley Mill.
Our bike mileage will span across 20 countries!
As our intrepid team spins away the miles across France, Germany, Poland, Ukraine, Russia and Kazakhstan, the most scenic it will get will be a view of the car park! But it’s all for a great cause, with all monies being donated to the British Heart foundation and Clic Sargent – set to benefit by £1 per mile – that’s £5,944 in total – if the fund-raising target is reached.
In celebration of 35 years of Print-Rite
The team at Langley Mill decided to undertake the exercise bike challenge to harness some of the great team spirit at the company while marking Print-Rite’s 35th anniversary.
The ride is now underway and at least 17 members of the team will be taking their turn to clock up the miles, on two bikes, on a rota basis. At the last check we had reached Turkey.
We have worked out that at an average of four hours’ cycling per day we should reach Zhuhai by 30th September – in time to congratulate Mr Arnald Ho and the Print-Rite team on their anniversary.
