Alpine Bikes turbo challenge for Rob Roy fundraising

Alpine Bikes turbo challenge for Rob Roy fundraising
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Last week Capital staff held a dress down day with a Bike Roadshow & Turbo Challenge to raise more funds for the Rob Roy Challenge.

alpine bikesThe Turbo Cycle Challenge was hosted by Alpine Bikes who run Capital’s company Cycle to Work Scheme.

Everyone that took part was allocated a 5 minute slot to try and cycle the furthest distance and it was great fun – although rather exhausting!

Jack Luke (pictured above) of Alpine Bikes ran the event with a Roadshow for the bike to work scheme and Alpine Bikes very kindly sponsored the main prizes. Congratulations to Marian Rogers & Ross Kilgour for winning the challenge (both pictured above and below).

Well Done to everyone on a fantastic turn out for the Turbo Challenge and dress down day, thanks for taking part and for all the donations. (About £400 was raised from the day’s activities).

Special thanks to Kerry Tarr and Susan Hogg for organising the day with the raffle and prizes.
