More than £100,000 raised by
industry for Transaid charity

A total of 58 cyclists from across the passenger and freight transport industry completed a 240-mile London to Paris cycle ride to raise funds for Transaid.

The group had already raised more than £100,000 when they set off from London, and this figure is expected to grow once all sponsorship money is collected.

Fundraising goes towards supporting our projects to transform lives in sub-Saharan Africa through safe, available, and sustainable transport.

The European cycle challenge, which is in its fifth year, saw the group face hilly terrain, balanced with sections through picturesque and quaint villages in northern France, to cross the finish line at the Eiffel Tower.

The 58 riders represented an impressive 31 firms including Alpine Travel, Backhouse Jones Solicitors, Dawson Group, Ecodrive Transmissions, Hammonds Coaches, Hearns Coaches, Lucketts, Irizar UK, Metroline, Pulhams Coaches, Stanley Travel and uTrack,

Transaid are planning a special 20th anniversary cycle ride in spring 2019.
