Extra Mile Challenge Completed!

17 Oct 2017

This year nine 39 teams entered the Extra Mile 2017 Brittany Cycle Challenge!

The event sees teams of 4 cycle over 500 miles across 3 days throughout continental Europe with the aim of raising as much money as possible for local charities in the areas in which Extra Mile challenges operate. This year’s route saw teams cycling through Brittany in France. Starting the weekend in Chartres, we cycled to Rennes, where we spent the second day cycling a loop around the local forests and undulating countryside, with the final day spent cycling along three of the Normandy D-Day landing beaches; Omaha, Sword and finishing the event at Juno Beach. With extraordinary coastal scenery, some sobering commemorations to the fallen of that fateful day in May 1944, and a total of over 26,000ft of gruelling climbs, this year’s cycle was certainly one to remember.

Whilst the event was an enjoyable long weekend of cycling, the main goal of the challenge was to raise money for charity and were hoping that yet again we’ll be able to deliver over £80k to local charities.
