The team at Metro Safety are once again demonstrating their commitment to charity. As part of Metro Safety’s 25th anniversary celebrations a team of 10 cyclists will take on the huge challenge of cycling through 6 countries in 6 days, a total distance of 485 miles.
Beginning on 21st September 2017 the route will see the group leave from Saarbrücken, Germany visiting France, Luxembourg, Belgium and Holland before finishing the ride in Trafalgar Square, London.
With a mix of competent and beginner cyclists, this ride will be a tough challenge for all those taking part. They will need to cover an average of 80 miles each day and climb an ascent of 20,000'
In keeping with Metro Safety’s values, the focus of the challenge will be on raising much needed funds for charity. We aim to raise over £20,000 for four chosen charities including:
- Children’s Burns Trust – A national charity dedicated to providing rehabilitation support for burned and scald injured children and their families, as well as prevention and awareness campaigns.
- Mesothelioma UK – A national specialist resource centre, specifically for the asbestos-related cancer, mesothelioma. The charity is dedicated to providing specialist mesothelioma information, support and education, and to improving care and treatment for all UK mesothelioma patients and their carers.
- Caring Matters Now – The only dedicated UK charity to provide information and support for those affected by Congenital Melanocytic Naevi.
- Macmillan Cancer Support – Providing specialist health care, information and financial support to people affected by cancer. As well as the social, emotional and practical impact cancer can have and campaigns for better cancer care.
