Keytek to take part in ‘Glastonbury Bike Ride 2014’ in aid of the British Heart Foundation
Following on from the amazing success of last year’s bike ride, the Keytek™ team will be taking part in this year’s charity cycle event the ‘Glastonbury Bike Ride 2014’ in aid of Charity the ‘British Heart Foundation’.
The Keytek™ Team will be setting off from the starting line located in Glastonbury, Somerset on Sunday 21st September. Participants will have the choice of either a 27 or 48 mile cycle across the picturesque countryside of Somerset. Those participating in last year’s cycling event managed to raise over £2,250 in sponsorship, beating their original target of £1,500. This year the Team will be looking to smash last year’s total by aiming to raise £2,500.
Previously the Keytek™ team have taken part in several charity bike rides, including last year’s ‘Glastonbury Bike Ride’ and the gruelling ‘80 mile from Bath to Bournemouth Cycle’, all of which have been in aid of the ‘British Heart Foundation’.
