Blockley cyclists ride 150 miles in 24 hours for charity
TWO cyclists have ridden 150-miles in 24 hours to raise money for Midlands Air Ambulance.
Rob Jones, general manager of Watsonian Squire, in the Northwick Business Park in Blockley, and storeman Dave James have raised more than £370 after completing their ride over the weekend.
Their ride was in memory of their colleague Mike Ellis, who was killed in the business park in April last year after a lorry in front of him reversed as he was test-riding a motorbike.
The pair rode from Blockely to North Bristol and over the old Severn bridge following the river Wye to Tintern, before climbing into the Forest of Dean and onto the Malvern Hills.
"The ethos of the ride was to do something very difficult that encompassed all the places that Mike and I rode, both on and off road" said Mr Jones, a former superbike racer.
Their bike ride was followed by the annual Mike Ellis Memorial Run on Sunday which raised more than £500 for the Mike Ellis Memorial Fund.
