*********************UPDATE*********************

Team NVT completed the 51 miles of the Pedal for Scotland Challenge Ride in glorious sunshine yesterday. In the process, they managed to raise £510 so far for Maggie’s Cancer Centres. Team NVT give their thanks to all who donated and to the company who very generously contributed £350 to the total.

 

You can still make a donation at www.justgiving.com/NVT  if you like to help us raise more!

The day did not go without incident when a member of our team (Gary, on the left of the picture) had a catastrophic failure with his bike (snapped chain, bent frame, burst spokes) just 3 miles from the start! We had to find him a replacement bike which left him an hour behind the rest of us. Amazingly, he cycled flat out for 30 miles with no stops to overtake some of us (Ali and Colin were off in the distance already) at Kirkliston!

 

Over 9000 people took part in the event which was brilliantly organised and had a great atmosphere. The beautiful weather certainly helped to make it  a very enjoyable day.

 

 

We hope we can expand the NVT Team for next year’s event!
