Guy Dawson, Partner of Dixon Dawson Chartered Architects successfully completed the Velothon Berlin 180km Cycle Ride on Sunday 18 June.
The event which also included courses of 60km and 120km attracted over 11,500 participants from 77 nations starting and finishing at the Bradenburg Gate.
Over the past few months Guy’s training routine around the hills of Durham, Sheffield and The Peak District equipped him well for the trials and tribulations of such an epic ride, which he completed in just over 6 hours in scorching 28 degree heat.
This is the first time Guy has undertaken this iconic event and has raised over £3,300.00 for CRESST, a local charity delivering conflict resolution education for young people by young people.
Guy said “it was a fantastic atmosphere and well worth all the hard work – I’d like to thank all those who sponsored me, and I’m delighted to have raised such a large amount of money for a great local charity”
Gavin Ward (Partner) said ” we are all very proud of Guy in the office – it’s a superb achievement”
