So on Saturday evening the Green Army 2016 team successfully completed their bike ride raising money for Blood Wise UK when they arrived at the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.
4 days of intense cycling, tired legs, long distances, mountains and climbs that the Tour De France teams will be cycling in July and a whole lot of laughs later they finished and I was able to go and meet them as I was still in Barcelona.
I can’t wait to hear more stories, of the highs, lows and what they got up to! I know that they all work hard to support each other on these rides, and it isn’t a competition, it is all about ensuring the whole team successfully completes the challenge and raises as much money as they can for charity.
My conference finished on Friday and I was invited to join the Green Army team and the other participants of the Discover Adventure bike ride for dinner on the Saturday.
Before they went out, I did ask my dad to let the person that manages the website know to put a twitter feed on the site – so that people that didn’t have twitter could still see the photos! Do check the photos out, they even include photos of the beautiful scenery, team photos, and even a quick sit on a snowmobile (yes, they were that high in the mountains!).
Their JustGiving page is still open and I would be very grateful if you could donate to Bloodwise – no matter how big or small the amount! You can donate by clicking here.
