A team of five McLarens Aviation employees participated in the London to Brighton challenge on Sunday, 21st June. The event is Europe’s oldest and largest charity bike ride. Over 22,000 cyclists participated this year to raise money for heart disease research.
We started as a team, finished as a team.
McLarens Aviation Risk & Asset Management Division’s Commercial Manager, Mark Rogers, led the team consisting of Paul Jenkins (Surveyor), Elliot Osborne (Technical Services Technician), Kate Grubb (Technical Services Technician), and Adrienne Bouch (Billings Controller). Their fundraising efforts continue. You can make a donation here.
Mark shares, “We started as a team, finished as a team, (4.5 hours). We enjoyed nice cool, summery weather en-route and great views of the West Sussex Countryside, including the infamous Ditchling Beacon which is the third-highest point on the South Downs in south-east England at just under 1000ft. With only 7 more miles after the big hill, our ride was rewarded at the finish along Brighton sea by cheering spectators and cool sea breezes to celebrate the team and events success.”
