Keith Jones, Structural Area Sales Manager, gets on his bike for the Nightrider challenge
Earlier in the year, Keith Jones, Structural Area Sales Manager for the South East, and his son Liam, completed the Nightrider challenge in London.
Starting in 2010, Nightrider is an annual event aimed at raising funds for charity, but with a difference as, yes you’ve guessed it, it’s completed at night. The challenge offers competitors either 50k or 100k route options.
“Last year we did the 50k, which until this year was the furthest I’d ridden in one go. My son Liam said we had to go the full distance this year,” said Keith.
This year included events at Glasgow, London & Liverpool (not on the same night). The 50k London event started and finished at the
Velodrome in Stratford, while the 100k looped north to Hampstead and south to Crystal Palace, both routes go through central London and take in all the obvious sites including the Houses of Parliament and sites along the Mall at 2:00am.
“Starting at 10:30 pm, it was quite a cool evening, so we couldn’t stop still for long. Taking into consideration the four rest stops we had, we finished at 6:15 am and this year we were both supporting Alzheimer’s Society,” said Keith.
Together, Keith and his son raised over £600 for Alzheimer’s, of which £150 was donated by Anderton.
Big well done and congratulations to both!
