Three Great Plains staff – Colin Adams, David Holmes and Euan Adamson – took part in the Coast to Coast Cycle Race, a 150 mile race that starts at Seascale on the West coast of the UK and finishes at Whitby on the East coast.

They formed part of a six man team, being joined by friends Jim Dalton, Neil Clark and Rufus Pilgrim.

Euan Adamson finished in a time of nine hours and eight minutes excelled, coming ninth of the 500 competitors, while Colin and David finished a little further down the field.

The route posed some serious challenges, says Euan: “Fairly early in the day we had to go over both the Hardknott and the Wrynose Passes, although we did get a brief break as we crossed Lake Windermere on a car ferry”.
