Team Agria blasts through Brittany for charity

Huge congratulations to all 14 members of Team Agria who made it to the 510-mile Extra Mile Challenge finish line.

The tough three-day challenge saw the four teams cycle in relay across the French route for their four chosen charities; Dogs for Good in Association with Stocklake Park School (MASKS), Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, Medical Detection Dogs and Pets as Therapy.

All cyclists taking part did exceptionally well, especially as three of the four teams were one member down. Even so, Simon Wheeler’s (Agria’s MD) team led the pack throughout much of the event, despite the challenge of total ride elevations exceeding a very steep 26,000 feet.

Simon says, “Brittany is not as flat as we thought! It has been a challenging, but immensely satisfying, three days of cycling thanks to our tough team members and the incredible boost we all felt from riding in support of such life-changing charities.”

 There’s still time to sponsor the cyclists! If you can help Team Agria reach their target of £5,000 for their nominated charities, you can donate at: www.virginmoneygiving.com/team/Agria.Charity.2017
