Congratulations to the Ace Cycling Team! Clapham to Brighton in a day

The intrepid 8 riders for Ace of Clubs set off from Clapham Common at 8:30 am. The last group arrived in Brighton at 5:30! Special mention must be made of  Damasio and Mark, who despite having to walk up all the hills, completed the 55 miles and were still smiling the next day . Here they are at the top of Ditchling Beacon catching their breath before the seven mile descent to the beach

it’s not too late to sponsor the team – just follow this link!
