Blackfish Charity Ride 2019 Recap
On 29th September fifteen hardy individuals set out on our charity ride for this year. Once again we organised the event in support of Renewable World - a great charity doing work to support the integration of renewables into communities in developing countries.
Unlike last year, the weather was not in our favour and it was truly a day for mudguards and waterproof jackets. We were so pleased to see how many people turned out despite the conditions! The ride itself was a nice steady pace and kept the group together. It was not without a few incidents - a broken chain and a puncture, but when you are riding around with a group of engineers, these were insignificant obstacles!
The cake stop in Backwell was well stocked and a welcome chance to refuel for the remainder of the ride. A quick re-route to avoid the worst of the conditions altered the end of the ride and for some brave (crazy) cyclists the chance to sprint up Naish Hill was a challenge to be relished.
All in all, a great day out with strong camaraderie, raising £1000 for Renewable World and we didn't even get that wet!
