Staff and supporters cycle 37 miles as part of the national Tour De Y event

More than 30 YMCA DownsLink Group staff and supporters took part in a 37 mile off-road sponsored cycle ride on Sunday 21st September. The cyclist set off early in the morning from YMCA Guildford’s Bridge Street venue and took the scenic Downs Link path all the way to Shoreham with a stop over in Horsham.

The bike ride happened as part of Tour De Y which is a national fundraising initiative from YMCA England.

The High Sheriff of Surrey Peter Lee, who is an active supporter of the YMCA, took part in the bike ride. When the riders reached the halfway point at Southwater Country Park in Horsham they were greeted by Peter Lee’s counterpart the High Sheriff of Sussex Jonathan Lucas who was wearing full High Sheriff regalia.
