The Fulwell Flyers left Clapham Common at 6:30am and were all safely in Brighton by 11am. The Team were held up 10 miles in when there was a crash on the course which prompted an approximate 30 minute wait.
Once the team got going again they were flying along until they reached the Ditchling Beacon which many riders fear and rightly so. At a mile long and an incline of over 100 metres twisting through the hill without any sight of the top and already 46 miles into the ride, not many conquer. Three of the Fulwell Flyers made it to the top without walking but three despite valiant efforts had to walk albeit for a maximum of 200 metres to the top.
It was all downhill into Brighton from there and the team flew down the hills and came across the finish line to regroup as a team.
Over £2,500 has now been raised for two very worthy charities.
