Lincoln business completes 874 mile charity bike ride

Completed: A Lincoln business has successfully finished its cycling challenge for charity, with miles to spare.

A Lincoln businesse that decided to cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats on stationary bikes has completed — and surpassed — its target.

With the help of other organisations across Lincoln, The Number 4 Group cycled 1,268.7 miles on their #Point2Point charity cycle for Active Nation, a national charity aimed at getting people more active, and the Ally Cadence Trust for Spinal Muscular Atrophy, as chosen by city residents.

All 49 cyclists biked their target of 18km in their allocated hour, with a few participants riding over 30km in the hour. The fastest cyclist covered 39.6km (24.6 miles) in their session.

Jimmy Claffey, The Number4 Group’s Business Information & Marketing Coordinator, said: “We are still currently collecting in the sponsorship money from our dedicated cyclists, however by the sponsorship forms already submitted and some research.

We are expecting to donate over £1,000 to our chosen charities. We’ll keep you updated with the exact amount over the next couple of weeks when everyone has managed to track down their sponsors.

“Well done to everybody for such an incredible fund-raising effort, and if you’d like to donate, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and help us generate money for two great charities.”
