Saddle up for Vision Aid Overseas

May 30, 2011 in Leightons News

Our very own Managing Director Sue Cockayne is part of an 11-strong group of cyclists who are taking part in a 300km Swedish Bike Ride, which is claimed to be the biggest bicycle event in the world, in a bid to raise £5,000 for Vision Aid Overseas. During a week in June, 30,000 people take part in cycle events situated around Lake Vattern.

In preparation for the event, Sue and the team (made up of people from various optical companies) recently rode from London to Brighton and back and are hoping to complete a good part of the Swedish 300km ride together, with some of the faster riders then breaking away to finish in under 12 hours.
