CITY TO SURF 2015
CITY TO SURF 2015
The City to Surf charity cycle ride departed Vintners' Hall at 08:00 hrs on Sunday 28 June.  The ride was officially started by Alderman & Sheriff Dr Andrew Parmley accompanied by his wife, Wendy.

A total of 23 cyclists took part supported by a back-up team of 8.

The first day of the ride saw overcast skies and light showers, brightening up later into the afternoon.  A morning refreshment stop at Fairoaks Airport was followed by lunch at Preston Candover Village Hall after some 62 miles of cycling.

There was another refreshment stop in the afternoon before all riders arrived in Salisbury for the first overnight stay. 

Day two brought with it more challenging terrain as the team ventured further southwest against the prevailing wind.  Lunch at Hinton St George Village Hall was a welcome sight with Exeter being the second overnight stop.

The final day was the most challenging in terms of terrain and heat as the road quickly headed upwards out of Exeter.  The route took the cyclists over the top of Dartmoor!  It was hot but the views were spectacular with hardly a cloud in the sky.
The epic ride culminated almost 300 miles from the City of London on the beach at Holywell Bay just south of Newquay.  All the team enjoyed a welcome beer kindly donated by St Austell brewery before a celebration supper at Trevornick Holiday Park hosted by Rob and Jane Hartley.  
To date, the ride has raised in excess of £54,000 as funds continue to trickle in.  The proceeds will be split between the Lord Mayor's Appeal and the Vintners' Foundation.  Donations may still be made HERE prior to the fund closing in due course.
