In September, we held the incredible bike challenge Ride to the Somme. A team of 46 riders successfully covered 250 miles in 3 days, cycling from Portsmouth to the Somme. They were joined by Helen Skelton and BBC’s Countryfile on day 2 and stopped at many monuments along the way including the Memorial to the Missing in Thiepval, which marks the 72,195 British and African soldiers with no known grave.
Our riders have so far raised an astounding £100,000 for SSAFA.
