Ten cyclists from across the Moto community are reflecting on the completion of another rewarding Big Battlefield Bike Ride (BBBR) in support of its national charity partner, Help for Heroes. The Team cycled 329 miles in 5 days across Northern France, commemorating 75 years since the D-Day landings.
The Team were also supported by all Moto’s sites who have fundraised and pedaled their static bikes during BBBR. Together they raised £73,000 and cycled 12,895km.
One of the Team in France, David, a Supervisor from Moto Doncaster, summed up the week perfectly:
“Throughout the week I had the pleasure of riding with all the Band of Brothers. Whilst listening to their stories and asking them questions, it immediately brought home the reason why both myself, my fellow Moto team and the company as a whole spend so much time fundraising for a very special cause. The week has been a highlight in my 19 year Moto career and an inspiring chapter in my life.”
Brian Larkin, the Chairman of Moto in the Community Trust, said: “ We are proud of this great achievement by the riders and our colleagues on our sites and we would like to thank everyone for their continued support.”
2019 was the third year that Moto has sent a team to complete the BBBR and hope to take part in the event in 2020 which will mark the 80th anniversary of the Dunkirk evacuations.
