Morrison Design team cycle 860 miles in June

The Morrison Design team have cycled 730 miles in June as part of the Alzheimer’s Society challenge Cycle for Dementia, with John also adding 130 miles towards his 2024 mile challenge.

James, Josh, Ollie and Hayley have each cycled between 100-250 miles over the month in aid of our charity of the year. 

“The month didn’t get off to the best start when my road bike decided it didn’t want to downshift anymore, which made going uphill extremely challenging. However, I still took in many sights across the month including Berlin, Cologne, Dortmund and Gelsenkirchen. 

Yes, most of my miles were completed on my exercise bike whilst watching the football, which had its benefits because I don’t have any hills in the spare bedroom but on the downside, you can’t freewheel down the other side of the big hill!”

James Parratt, Project Manager

Our next team challenge is Step up for Dementia which will see eight team members complete 900,000 steps over the next three months, averaging 10,000 steps per day. Good luck to Jo, Nik, Liam, Sunny, Cinzia, Les, Sef and Hayley.

Meanwhile, John is halfway through his challenge to complete 2,024 miles in 2024 and has completed 1,014 miles in total so far.

“The 250-mile challenge was an absolute breeze compared to John’s 2024 miles in 2024 and averaging 169 miles per month so far is an unbelievable effort. Keep it up John, you’re smashing it.”

James Parratt, Project Manager

John has enjoyed some sunshine for his rides this month. He said:

“The weather continues to slowly improve, and my wife Gillian has been able to join me at the weekends on some of the long rides which has been nice. The route around Carsington water takes on some serious hills but the view from the top is worth it.

I took some time this month in an attempt to create some Strava Art in the name of our chosen charity. And the Raleigh chopper commute day is coming soon – watch this space!!!
