|Since its inception in 2012, the Colt charity bike ride has gained momentum and this year’s event will involve 90 cyclists and 20 support crew.
Riders will be signing up for either a ‘road route’ which will require participants to cycle 453km in four days, or the ‘daredevil route’ which will comprise 529km and rocky terrains for the riders to complete in the same four day period.
Fostering the core values of team work and a commitment towards the local community, the bike ride will also set new records this year. In 2014, it raised €100,000 for regional charity partners, and this year is set to achieve €200,000. All funds will be donated to local charities selected by Colt employees. UK riders are fundraising for Coram, one of the oldest UK-based charitable organisations supporting vulnerable children.
Sharing this commitment to fundraise for charities in vital need of support, Paragon looks forward to sponsoring Colt’s charity bike ride and supporting all fundraising cyclists, including some of their own staff. To donate, please visit Colt’s Just Giving page.
