Great Notts Bike Ride – We did it!!

On 25th June 2017, 19 members of team Solutions got kitted up in lycra, helmets and padded shorts to cycle a mixture of 25, 50 and 75 miles across the Nottinghamshire countryside to raise money and awareness for the fantastic charity – Nottingham Children’s Hospital!

Some of the more dedicated members of team Solutions trained hard for this event, others just managed to wing it on the day – what could possibly have gone wrong? Prior to the event, we already had two fairly major bike related injuries, one resulted in a broken elbow and ribs, and the other in a hip replacement so, as you can imagine, the rest of us were dubious to get out on our bikes – that was our excuse anyway!

Thankfully, the day was a LOT cooler than the previous week, but despite the cloud and a few spots of rain – a number of team Solutions still managed to catch the sun – badly! To add to this, one person did turn up to the Great Notts BIKE Ride – without a bike!! Needless to say this person will be getting stick for the foreseeable future.

Nottingham Children’s Hospital are a local charity, part of Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. The charity’s goal is to make a child as comfortable as possible during their stay in hospital, this is inevitably a distressing time for both the patient and their family. The work they do is amazing and very appreciated.
