Thirty cyclists from the Exeter area took on a 145-mile bike ride from London to Amsterdam last month to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.
The riders were taking part in the larger Football to Amsterdam event which sees hundreds of riders, linked to different football club across the country, set off from northern (Barnsley) and southern (London) points before cycling to the capital of the Netherlands.
The team managed to raise a staggering £64,094.22 for Prostate Cancer UK, which was more than any other team on the ride, and significant chunk to the overall total raised for the year of £482,722.52
This year was particularly tough on the participants. The cyclists setting off from London, rode into storm Miguel on the first day, as they completed the first 90 miles from the Velodrome in Stratford to the ferry crossing at Harwich.
The weather didn't get much better in Holland either, as while they had a tailwind behind them, there were a number of downpours throughout the morning.
However, all of the Exeter team completed the course. The Exeter team was as follows:
Team Mi-Space's Mike Green, who was the top fundraiser on the Football to Amsterdam ride, collecting over £9,000 for the cause.
The team would like to thank the following companies that sponsored them for the ride.
Route 2 Bike Shop
Commercial Drone Training
CS Flooring Solutions
Denholm Industrial Services
Portable Power Technology
Rabart Decorating Centres
RGB Building Supplies
Stuarts Truck and Bus
TMR Electrical Services
Exeter City would also like to thanks the friends and family of John Evans, who donated the £400.47 collected at his funeral to the fundraising total.
John, who recently died from Prostate Cancer at the age of 80, was a loyal Exeter City supporter and season ticket holder, much-loved husband, dad and grandad who will be sadly missed by his family, friends and those at the football club who knew him well.
