More than 750 RBS and Nat West staff will be cycling from London to Edinburgh this week, over a five day period, stopping along the way at Banbury, Stafford, Birmingham, Manchester, Blackburn and Carlisle in aid of charity.

The Cycle Challenge, in aid of Sport Relief, is being supported by Michael Vaughan, ex-England cricket captain and former England Rugby union internationals Martin Corry MBE, Mark Cueto and Lewis Moody MBE.

The Challenge will be broken up into 100 mile stretches over five days, with some staff cycling the entire distance, and others cycling a 100 mile stage or 35 mile stage. In total, staff will cover 107,500 miles over the five day period.

Michael Vaughan, ex-England cricket captain, said:  “As a huge fan of all kinds of sport, I’m really pleased to be supporting Sport Relief and the Cycle Challenge and will be cheering on all those taking part. This will raise money for the neediest communities both here in the UK and abroad and so I hope people can dig deep to support this worthy cause.”

Amongst the staff taking part are Sharon Lowther and Marie Nichol from Nat West bank in Huddersfield, who will be riding the 100 mile leg from Stafford to Blackburn – on a tandrem. Arrow Self Drive are delighted to be able to support the girls in this worthy challenge by providing a support vehicle.

Michael Hall, a colleague from Nat West, collected the Kombi van from Huddersfield as he will be driving the van and supplying refreshments and mechanical as well as moral support.

We wish all the teams involved the best of luck and a safe journey.
