Riding to make a difference: Preston Bike Binge

We are proud to announce that our Managing Director, Shane Friend, participated in the momentous Preston Bike Binge event. This year’s event promised to be bigger, better and more impactful than ever before.

A decade of pedalling for a purpose

The Preston Bike Binge celebrated its 10th anniversary, becoming a beacon of hope and compassion for our community.

Each year, cycling enthusiasts and individuals with big hearts gather to pedal their way towards positive change. This year was no different with a commendable objective of reaching £13,000, aiming to surpass an impressive £100,000 milestone over the past decade.

The chosen charities were Cuerden Valley Trust – In memory of Ste Newton, Motor Neurone Disease Association – In memory of Len Johnrose, St Catherine’s and Derain House.
