Norfolk businesses in a spin — Firms take on cycle challenge for disabled people

13 April 2017

Cyclists at last years Cycle Together Cycle Together Sandringham, West Norfolk’s premier charity cycling event, is challenging businesses to raise their cycling game. A special prize is on offer for the company that brings the most cyclists to the event this summer.

The annual ride, which raises money for disabled people to enjoy holidays at Leonard Cheshire Disability’s Park House Hotel, is offering corporate membership at Alive Leisure for three months. All employees will benefit from 20% off fitness membership, if the company has the most cyclists. 

Businesses from across the county are already signing up for the event, held on Sunday 18 June. Organisers hope the new prize incentive will continue to spur on people to hop on their saddles. 

One company that so far has four staff members signed up is Duff Morgan, a car dealer from Kings Lynn.

Manager Martin Seal said:

‘We like to support local charities and the community.

‘We have seen the Cycle Together grow every year and wanted to be part of it.’

This year, all money raised by cyclists will go towards an outdoor activity area for wheelchair users at Leonard Cheshire Disability’s Park House hotel in Sandringham. Over the past four years over £60,000 has been raised by the event for disabled people staying at the hotel. 

Hotel visitor Joy Frith said:

‘When you come to Park House it doesn’t take you long to realise you are staying at a very special place. It’s a holiday which is inclusive in the true sense of the word.’

Cycle Together Sandringham offers five different routes this summer, all starting and finishing in the grounds of Park House hotel. Options are 10, 25, 50, 75 and 100 miles, all fully sign-posted and with free feed stations stocked with cold drinks and nutritious snacks.

Individuals representing a company can choose their own distance, so cyclists of all abilities can take part.
