A team of 5 cyclists from Solihull-based finance company, Aspen Bridging are taking on a 300km cycling challenge across France with an aim to raise £30,000 in aid of NICE, Centre for Movement Disorders and the Keith Coombs Trust which both help physically disabled children and adults in the West Midlands.
The route takes the Aspen cyclists from the French town of Millau to the Mediterranean coast including Mount Ventoux, often climbed in the Tour de France and reaches the height of over 15,000 feet. No mean feat!
Anthony Coombs, Trustee of NICE and Chairman of Aspen Bridging parent S&U plc said:
“We have long supported the wonderful work for disabled children done by the Centre for Movement Disorder, NICE, as well as other similar children’s charities. Since Aspen is launching its bridging loan product, it seemed a good idea to focus our fund-raising cycle ride on famous bridges. That is where our legs will take us and we’re already preparing them for the task!
Louise Watkins, Fundraising & Marketing Manager, says “We are delighted that Aspen Bridging have chosen to take on this extreme challenge in aid of NICE, a pioneering charity based in Moseley that helps children and adults with incurable movement disorders to overcome any physical and mental challenges that stand in their way. We wish the cyclists the very best of luck in any challenges they meet on their way – you can do it as we say at NICE!”
