Despite a heavy down pour of rain throughout the morning, our Morgans team of four (Laura, James, Spencer and Reece), took on The Leeds Physiotherapy Clinic Park Square Cyclo-thon on Friday 29th September, alongside a few other Leeds’ businesses to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The challenge comprised of a 10 minute cycle on static bikes by all members of the team (under a gazebo – they were pleased to find!) whilst their competitors raced alongside them in another tent – in a Tour de Yorkshire inspired setup with classic cars, hay bales and model sheep.
To those sat reading this thinking ‘10 minutes? Easy…’ – wrong! The Morgans team cycled flat out on their preferred resistance levels to try and beat the previous teams’ overall distance. Not quite Tour de France speeds; but determination, perseverance and competitiveness all helped drive the team to keep going until the very last second!
Nevertheless, once the stopwatch finished, a sigh of relief and group cheers were celebrated as they were told they had managed 15.9 miles between the four of them!
A momentous effort from all who took part and a brilliant set up from The Leeds Physiotherapy Clinic in support of Macmillan, who despite the weather, stood and cheered for each of the cyclist’s during the Cyclo-thon challenge.
We’re thinking Morgans cycling suits for next year…
