What a day for a bike ride! Our Midlands team were out in force to complete stage 31 of The Countrywide Great Tour.
Landing safely in Skegness our team of cyclists were buzzing from working together and pulling each other through the 83 mile journey.
Here are some pictures and comments from a few of the team who took part;

‘Probably, in fact definitely the toughest thing I have ever done. Never thought riding 83 miles would have been enjoyable! A good day all round’ – Ian Dean, Branch Manager for Frank Innes, Nottingham.
‘An amazing day! I feel really proud of myself for completing the challenge and raising £490 for Macmillan Cancer Care. Such a brilliant atmosphere all day and a fantastic reception from family, friends and colleagues in Skegness. The event was really well organised and we received great support all day! Good luck to Jimmy for the rest of the tour!’ – Lisa Rowden, Regional Director for Bairstow Eves.
‘What a fantastic team – we pedalled together, laughed together and felt an awful lot of pain together. A team of excellent estate agents but novice cyclists just rode 83 miles …. WOW! A special mention to the support team, who organised and fed us well throughout the day.’ – Liam Hancox, Regional Manager for Spencers Estate Agents.
Well done to everyone who has taken part in this epic journey so far and the best of luck to all the participants joining in the next few weeks!
