The team including Adrian Champion Head of Operational Standards at West Midlands Trains are all keen cyclists and are looking forward to the challenge and the route, taking in the epic scenery – and gradients – of the Northern Pennines and the Lake District.
The WMT Bonkers Bikers are raising money for the Railway Children charity, a charity close to their hearts. Every year thousands of children across the UK, India and East Africa run away or are forced to leave homes that have become unbearable through poverty, abuse, violence and neglect. Railway Children provide protection and opportunity for children with nowhere else to go and nobody to turn to.

Adrian said, “Having supported the charity for nearly 15 years through cycling and challenge events it has been hugely rewarding to see how the funds raised are used and hear about the real difference it is possible to make to the lives of young people that have come upon hard times. We are extremely grateful to the team at AssessTech for being one of our very generous sponsors, helping us towards our £10,000 sponsorship target”.
