D-Day Cycle event raises £8k

A group of New life cyclists successfully completed the 160 mile D-Day Cycle Challenge on the weekend of 17th June.  They visited the five D-Day beaches in Normandy, Northern France that saw the landings of the Allied Forces on 6th June 1944.  As part of the 160 miles, they stopped at many historic sites: sites that were key to turning points in WW2.

The sites visited included Pegasus Bridge, Omaha, Gold and Juno beaches, and the American and British cemeteries.  They laid a wreath at the British cemetery in Bayeux. The weather was a mix of sunshine and showers but the cyclists kept pushing on and between them raised a total of £8k.
