Inspired by talks from adventurer Alastair Humphreys and Hannah Memorial Academy trustee Christine Browning, we have decided to host a sponsored 1,718km virtual bike ride. Travelling the distance from our London HQ to our Spanish office in Madrid, to join our colleagues in time for the first stage of the Vuelta a España, which starts on August 24th.
Hotwire staff in the UK will take it in turns to jointly cycle the distance in the five days between August 19th and 23rd.
Staff will be on two bikes, hooked up to Ki Fit tracking devices, which will allow us to track the distance, and you can see that in the map below.
If you would like to donate money to the school, please visit our Just Giving page and help us hit our target of £1,000.
What a journey! we've finally arrived in Madrid after four and a half days of constant cycling. It really has been an incredible journey and we're so thankful to everyone who has donated throughout the week. If you still want to donate, you can at our JustGiving page. Once again thank you all and everyone.
