Bridge Bike Hire helps raise money for Dementia Revolution
Nigels daughter Kelly ran the marathon this year in aid of Dementia Revolution (finding a cure for Dementia) and Bridge Bike Hire helped her along to her incredible £6200 total with a charity bike ride and party as well as collecting donations from our wonderful customers.
Quite an achievement, Kelly finished in 4hours 27 minutes have run over 27 miles in total. Thank you to everyone who came along on the events and donated over the past few months. A great cause!
Ride with Nige
For those of you who follow Nige on social media you will know that he is a great one for his early morning rides thats to the stunning pictures he presents us all with first thing in the morning! Well, in a attempt to helpp his daughter Kelly raise £5000 for Dementia Revolution ( shes running the London Marathon this year) he's been taking groups of early riders down the trail with their camera and stopping at all his favourite spots along the way. Raising over £300 to add to the already huge total.
The rides have been great fun and finsihed off with a nice warming coffee and bacon bap at his favourite cafe in padstow. I have a feeling he may be doing this again next year but for now the final ride has been completed and her's back to cycling at all hours on his own!
In 2014 Nigel rode from Vancouver to Seattle in memory of his good friend Alan Jago who died the previous year from Cancer. Having trained for months around the North Cornwall roads and lanes, including the Camel Trail in most rides, he completed the ride, aged 69, and raised over £4000 for research into Cancer. The generosity and support of locals and those he met was incredible.
Ben Oliver from Bodmin is an exceptional athlete and all that was holding him back was the lack of professional equipment. After seeing an appeal in the local paper for donations Bridge Bike Hire purchased the bike for him and he was soon on his way success at national level.
'Bridge Bike Hire have been a huge help to me. They first approached me when I was in great need to keep up with the rest of the competition. Their contribution towards my chair has meant that I can now progress my Athletics career in ways I couldn't before. I cant thank them enough for the generosity they have given to me' Ben Oliver
