It must be almost every cyclist’s dream to cycle round the 5.14km Silverstone race track, home of the British Grand Prix. Last Sunday approximately 1,000 cyclists had the opportunity and joined the Silverstone Time Trial Challenge in support of the charity, Operation Smile, which helps children in the Third World with cleft palates.
It was also a great opportunity to demonstrate HGV awareness so CEMEX, O’Donovan Waste Management and MSL Milton Keynes Ltd provided vehicles and colleagues to talk to cyclists about cyclist safety.
A big thank you to Charlie Stanford, Adam Carty, Liam Hare, Craig Hall and Liz Young who gave up their Sunday (and got out of bed at some unearthly hour!) to be there.
