This compiled video should give you a feeling of the event - all taken without a tripod so apologies for some of the video not being as stable as we would have liked.

... and they arrived safely in Sindelfingen - a day earlier than planned!

Our committee members David and Neil set off for Sindelfingen on 8th June, just after 9 o'clock - see our earlier post.

... and here they are in the marketplace in Sindelfingen on the 14th, after a total of 524 miles!

The photo was taken by a kind German who happened to be passing!




In doing this ride, David has been raising money for the new MacMillan Cancer Centre at Chesterfield Royal Hospital.

If you would like to donate please see the Just Giving site below:

We congratulate them both on a remarkable feat.

Here are a couple of views of the Strassenfest - an area in the "Twinning Village" and crowds near our stall.
