06 May Pedelle – Oporto to Lisbon in 3 days
Late last month, the fifth annual PedElle took place and Kay Hughes participated for the third time, previously having cycled from Milan to Venice and Bilbao to Madrid.
The charity ride, organised by Club Peloton to raise money for Coram and sponsored by Legal & General Real Assets, has expanded from fewer than a dozen riders to almost 50 this year.
The three-day, 500km adventure took place in the 30 degree heat and required the riders to ascend over 7800m during the ride.
So far this year, PedElle has raised more than £34,000 for Coram, the UK’s oldest children’s charity and continues to support networking for women in the construction industry.
