Hundreds get on their bikes for the Herts 100

May 11, 2015

More than 700 cyclists joined former-Arsenal goalkeepers, and good friends, Bob Wilson and David Seaman on Sunday 10 May for this year’s Hertfordshire 100 event, raising funds for Willow.

The Herts 100, organised by Bike Events, is a mighty 100 mile, 60 mile or 25 mile ride through the beautiful Hertfordshire landscape. The sun was shining and there was a fun atmosphere as keen cyclists came together with reluctant riders, all cheered along the way by friends and family and Willow’s team of volunteers.

David Seaman, Charity Patron and close friend of Bob and Megs Wilson said: “I’ve just taken up cycling, so when Bob asked me to join him along the 60-mile route I was keen to take on the challenge. The work that Willow does is so worthwhile and I’m pleased that I’ve been able to support them today.”

Willow Life-President and keen cyclist, Bob said, “What a fantastic atmosphere! There was a real sense of team spirit among the participants along the route, I have to say particular thanks to David for taking part and also Willow challenge eventer, Richard Davis, for riding with us. Thanks to everyone who sponsored David and I, and for everyone else who has raised funds for Willow. Every penny raised will help us provide many more Special Days, creating memories that can be cherished by young adults with life-threatening illnesses and their loved ones.”

Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to all our fab volunteers for your help on the day.
