Dolphin's Cyclists Battle Bertha for Blind Veterans UK
Staff from Dolphin's Worcester office cycled through torrential rains to successfully complete RideLondon-Surrey 2014. Dolphin's team, including 2 blind riders, have raised around £3,000 for Blind Veterans UK.
"Our entire team is delighted to have completed the course raising cash for Blind Veterans UK" explains Dolphin's Dave Williams, one of two blind riders from Dolphin who completed the course.
The vicious tail of Hurricane Bertha brought thunder, heavy rain, gusting winds and water logged roads to much of the 86-mile route.
"One of the tyres on our tandem exploded miles from anywhere!" Dave explains. "Eventually we found a replacement, battled biblical rains and were delighted to complete the course."
Thousands of spectators also braved the adverse weather to line the streets of London and Surrey cheering on the 24,000 cyclists who took part.
A massive thanks from Dolphin to everyone who has supported the cycling team raising money for Blind Veterans UK. It's not too late if you want to donate online at: www.justgiving.com/Dolphin-Computer-Access-Ltd/.
