BP cyclists brave the elements in support of the British Paralympic Association
235 cyclists from BP came together as One Team last month riding off from Eton Dorney Lake in Windsor - the London 2012 Paralympic rowing course - in support of the British Paralympic Association.
Richard Whitehead MBE, World Record holder, current Paralympic and World Champion and long term BP sports ambassador, joined the riders on Friday 8 September to share his recent London 2017 success and be at the start line to see the riders off.
Now in its seventh year, the One Team cycle ride is organised by a team of BP staff, and offers three routes (25km, 50km and 100km) accommodating cyclists of all abilities.
Undeterred by the wet conditions ahead of them all riders successfully completed their rides in good time raising an incredible £8.5k in support of the British Paralympics Association - with BP Match Funding rising to a potential £17k! A fantastic effort, and one that we hope to build on as BP aim to repeat the event next year.
A huge thank you to all who braved the weather.
