Stansted Airport staff bike ride for charity, but never leave the terminal!

STAFF at Stansted Airport are pedalling the distance between London and Brighton without leaving the airport, as they raise cash for Macmillan Cancer Support.

On Wednesday (August 25) workers began cycling for 15 minutes each on exercise bikes between 8am and 8pm in the terminal building. They hoped to cover 54 miles – the equivalent distance of the iconic London to Brighton run.

Speaking at the event organiser Kerry Briars from Macmillan Cancer Support said: “There’s was a fantastic atmosphere in Stansted’s terminal today and the passengers passing through have been so generous.”

Steve Oldhamstead, a personal trainer from the airport’s PACE heath club, is pictured cycling during his 15 minute stint. The club, which is based at the Stansted’s Radisson Hotel, donated the bike as part of the event.
