2012 Charity Figures

I have done a quick summary of last year’s activities from the team

Snowdon – 14/04/2012

On the way upPosingGordy, Sai and I went up and down the mountain (7 miles distance, 2550 ft ascent) in 07:30 hours, with a team from P2C, it was chilly but sunny.

The evening was rounded off with the hottest madras curry I have ever eaten.

A thoroughly deserved pint was consumed after.

Videos, more pictures and a full write up on the trip can be found in this article..

Highlights

The sunset on the way there, absolutely stunning.

Ben Nevis – 01/09/2012

The Team.pngOn The ClimbSian, Sai, Mervin (The Home Office), Raja (Deloitte) and I went up and down (10.5 miles distance, 4400 ft ascent) in 08:00 hours, the weather for this one  was atrocious, but that only made getting to the top all the sweeter.

A thoroughly deserved pint was consumed after (or several and whisky).

Highlights

Coming back down, the fog had lifted, and we could actually see things/the stairs the next day (see video in blog).

London to Brighton Off Road Cycle Ride – 22/09/2012

GC Cycle  Mervin and myself cycled (75 miles distance, 4100ft of ascents) from London to Brighton separately in the end, in approx times of 10:00 and 8:30 respectively, it was cold and dry, but the most  gruelling cycle ride I have ever done!

Leaving London at about 08:00, we cycled to the outskirts of Guildford, then down to Brighton. Only about 10% of the journey was on tarmac, so it made the journey a lot more difficult than a straight cycle ride.

A thoroughly deserved pint (or two) was consumed after, notice the theme appearing here?

More information on the trip can be found in this article.

Highlights

Coming down the hill at the end!
