Record turnout for Gamma Charity Mountain Bike Vs Road Event

13/07/2016

Gamma’s annual charity cycle event recently took place in the scenic Chilterns. 40 cyclists met at Tring Rugby Club with a welcome from Chief Executive Bob Falconer, followed by breakfast which ensured everyone was fully energised for the cycle challenge ahead.

This year Gamma decided to switch things up and have both a road and a mountain bike course, providing more variety for participants. There were four tracks in total, two routes for the road cyclists (43 and 67 miles) and two routes for the mountain bikers (25 mile and 35 miles, although both equally as muddy).

Despite being greeted with heavy rain at the start line, the cyclists were lucky enough to experience some sunshine as the day progressed. The day finished with a BBQ which provided a great opportunity for everyone to catch up.

Although this event offers a fun day out for Gamma’s Channel Partners it’s also about raising money for charity. Gamma is pleased to confirm that £6,000 was raised, all of which went to Dingley’s, a Newbury-based charity that delivers life changing support to children under 5 with additional needs and disabilities.

Bob Falconer, Chief Executive, Gamma said “Our cycle event provides a great opportunity to spend some time in the outdoors with our channel partners. I was pleased to see some new faces this year and there was a fantastic atmosphere throughout the day. We are proud to be able to support such a great charity.”

Mike Iwanowytsch, Operations Director, Max Telecom said “The cycling event was a great success, despite the initial bad weather everyone had a brilliant time. It was great to see everyone and £6,000 is a fantastic amount to have raised. This year having the choice of road or mountain biking made things even more interesting.”
