Chase the Sun Charity Cycle

On 22 June 2024 a team of six staff, with the invaluable support of Dr Chris Harrison, managed to Chase the Sun.

It was indeed the longest day, waking at 3:15am, driving to the start and finally getting underway around 5:15AM from Minster. The Isle of Sheppey merged into South London, but once past the London sprawl, we enjoyed the glories of the Vale of Pewsey and Cheddar Gorge.

Various stops were made for intake of tea, coffee, sausage rolls, sandwiches, and Coca-Cola, fuelling us to a strong finish in the sunshine at Weston-super-Mare at 7:45PM.

Total time: 14H30M, 330km/205miles, and just shy of ÂŁ3000 raised for the bursary fund.

Thank you to all those who supported us with donations and words of support. Have a lovely summer and we hope you enjoy some cycling of your own. Tom, Becky, Sam, Tom, Rory and Seb
