Magdalene Charity Cycle Sportive.
Twenty eight riders made up the Magdalene charity cycle team to complete the Wiggle steeplechase sportive on the 7th September. The team included a mixture of Magdalene employees, friends and family. With some very welcome customer support from Sitec, DWN Partners and Dante and supplier’s 2i Design and Birketts.
Meeting at 8am on a crisp Saturday morning everyone pulled on the black and white Magdalene cycle jerseys to complete one of two routes. The short route of 47 miles was completed by a large number of riders with the group fastest time going to Glyn Cox with 2:52 hours. The remainder of riders completed the standard route of 61 miles with the group fastest time going to Tony Crane with 3:51 hours. The team endured punctured tyres, falls and tired limbs but it’s safe to say that fun was had by all!
Magdalene would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all the riders who as a team raised a fantastic total of £2,500 for Magdalene’s chosen charity of the year the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
