A group of committed cycle enthusiasts have raised more than £3,300 for Stop Hunger after taking on a 120-mile overnight bike ride.
The Dunwich Dynamo, in which cyclists pedal from London to Dunwich on the Suffolk Coast, was taken on by 14 Sodexo employees, who joined around 2,000 others for the 25th edition of the annual event.
Leaving London Fields in Hackney at around 8.30pm on Saturday 8 July, the Sodexo team left the capital via Epping Forest at nightfall, before pedalling through rural Essex an into Suffolk, arriving at Dunwich beach after dawn on Sunday morning. Some of team even took a dip in the North Sea.
Tim Wright, Sodexo head of asset management, who organised the Dunwich Dynamo team, said: “It was a fantastic bike ride and truly unique as a cycling event. Yes it was hard work but everyone instantly formed into a team and the atmosphere was wonderful. Everyone was a bit broken by the end but they all said they’d do it again next year!
“A big thanks to the Sodexo volunteers and charity champions who supported us, suppliers who provided snacks, Giles Denton for creating a fuel laden meal, and our volunteer drivers, including Harrow Green for transport back to London.
Thanks also to all the people who sponsored us. We’ve still got a bit to go to hit our £4,000 target so if you haven’t already please give to Stop Hunger.”
