All systems go for Saffron Walden cyclists
A TEAM from a Saffron Walden company successfully cycled from London to Brighton to raise money for charity.
The keen spirited bunch from LPA Niphan Systems, a firm which designs, manufactures and distributes power and cable management systems, took part in the 54-mile bike ride in aid of the British Heart Foundation (BHF).
The team, which included 10 LPA ‘volunteers’, joined 27,000 entrants cycling a route that includes three major hills and top speeds of 46mph.
Starting out from Saffron Walden at 4.30am, they reached the finish line at Brighton’s promenade in stages; the first came in at 11.45am and the last at 3pm.
All arrived back in town at 10pm and reported back for work as normal on Monday morning.
