A brave team of cyclists from RAF Northolt suffered through punctures, injuries and getting lost to travel 360 miles to Geneva for charity.

Following a tough route through quaint villages and along some awful roads the team of eight cyclists tackled the journey over five days.

The money raised will go to the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, which supports RAF veterans and their families with things like childcare, disability and financial hardship.

Reverend Squadron Leader Jess Holland, based at RAF Northolt, said: “The words 'never again' come to mind. However, as the dust settles and I return to the daily rythmn of life the question arises – 'when's the next one?'”

The team had to deal with GPS problems, punctures, broken bikes, injuries, falls and poorly maintain roads.

They climbed over 7,500 while trekking through the towns of Sens, Semur, Lons and finished in Geneva in Switzerland on September 10.

Regional director for the RAF Benevolent Fund, Paul Hewson, said: “Without the support of people like Jesse, we wouldn't be able to deliver the array of services we do for our beneficiaries.

“We really appreciate the time he's given and his endeavours will ensure that we can help even more people and continue to support the RAF family for many years to come.”
