Stepping up to the handle-bar for charity!

Alscot’s Estate Director, Robert Honan and business associates from the Stratford upon Avon office of law firm Lodders took to the saddle to cycle 70-miles in support of rural charity Countryside Learning.

Rob joined by lawyers Michael Wakeling, Alastair Frew and James Spreckley cycled a gruelling route that was just one-leg of a five-day fundraising initiative by Savills aiming to raise £100,000 for the charity.

Reaching an average speed of 15mph, the pedalling foursome completed the 70-mile route in just over 4 ½ hours.

Michael Wakeling was crowned the day’s ‘King of the Mountains’, Alastair Frew was awarded the green jersey for his sprinting prowess, whilst James Spreckley barely broke sweat all day. Our very own Rob kept having to slow down, so he took the day’s yellow jersey!

The cycle challenge aimed to cover 5,000 miles in and around different UK geographical locations via non-motorised means. The event finished/s on Friday 18th September culminating with a team from each of the regions cycling into London to meet at Savills’ headquarters in Margaret Street.
