Harvard CEO “Breaks” the Cycle
Harvard CEO John Matthews joined 100’s of riders for “Break the Cycle”
John joined more than 300 cyclists who braved the scorching conditions on Sunday to complete their chosen route at Break the Cycle 2017.
Hardy fundraisers saddled up in temperatures upwards of 25 degrees, setting off from Ashton Gate early in the morning and arriving back throughout the afternoon, having completed either the Gold (100 miles), Silver (65 miles) or Bronze (35 miles) routes.
“Hats off – and a huge thank you – to the hundreds of cyclists who took to the saddle in boiling hot conditions to raise money for our charities,” said chief community officer, Ben Breeze.
“Break the Cycle 2017 opened itself up to a whole new audience this year, with the introduction of two new, shorter routes and it was amazing to see cyclists of all ages, abilities and experiences taking part.
“Every penny raised goes towards the continuation and development of our life-changing and award-winning work, so we are eternally grateful to everyone for their mammoth efforts.”
