Arkriders

Arkriders raise more than £70K

They did it! The fabulous and formidable Arkriders have completed the Ark to Arc challenge – and they are on course to raise more than £70,000.

After four gruelling days in the saddle, the super cyclists rode round the Arc de Triomphe to the final meeting point at the Eiffel Tower at the end of a memorable journey that took them from Basingstoke to the heart of Paris.

The 265-mile journey was an emotional rollercoaster, and no more so than on the final afternoon after cyclist Simon Finch came off his bike just 20 miles from the finish and suffered a broken collarbone.
