Avant Garde Supports Bloodwise on London-Paris Bike Challenge

Monday, 14 October 2019 14:19

Twelve members of the Avant Garde salon group revently cycled from London to Paris to raise money for cancer charity Bloodwise (formerly Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research), raising over £11,000.

The team, including members from the Hereford and both the Worcester salons, cycled over 500km in just four days. The journey included several steep hill climbs that tested all the team. Many of the team had not previously cycled on roads and had to undertake extensive training before embarking on the feat. 

“I am so proud of my team, it has been so rewarding watching them,"  said salon owner and ride participant Ian Beswick. "Over the four days we have experienced every emotion together, many didn’t think they would be able to do it and wanted to give up!  The more time we spent surrounded by those affected by blood cancer the more the determination kicked in.” 

This determination was seen many times throughout the journey, including when one team member took a fall but returned to her bike the very next day to complete the challenge.
