Well done to everyone who took part in The Northumberland 100, a Quorum Cycle Challenge in partnership with Bike 4 Health.
On Saturday 2nd September, 22 members of staff from across Quorum rode a 100km ride before finishing off with a BBQ here onsite.
The route took in stunning scenery along the Northumberland Coast all the way up to QEII Lake at Woodhorn, Ashington where riders went inland to explore the local countryside, including a stop off at the Giant Spoon near Cramlington.
This was an exclusive Quorum event designed by Bike 4 Health’s John Conroy. John was delighted with the results. ‘It was a long day and at times heavy going, that said I think everyone commented on what a great day they had and really enjoyed themselves. It was a real challenge but a good one. The event showcased all the wagon way routes in the local area and demonstrate how many off road cycling opportunity’s are available.
The group also enjoyed a stop off at Mister Ridleys cafe and ice cream shop in Blyth’s Ridley Park along with a photo stop at Woodhorn.
A slice of cake and coffee or tea was enjoyed by all who took part.
Tesco Bank’s Gary Bullock enjoys the benefits of being in the Quorum Bicycle User Group. ‘I always keep my eye on the latest news from the BUG group, there are always loads of offers and free bike services available, when I saw the ride I thought it looked great and managed to rope some colleagues in too, Quorum really looks after the onsite cycling community, they really do help support anyone wanting to cycle.
