Studio to Studio Bike Ride: Halfway stage!

Teams from ADP’s UK studios are halfway through the 900km between Sherborne and Newcastle, via London, Oxford, Birmingham and Manchester. 

The team have seen some major sights on their way and have been tweeting their progress for all to follow: just follow @MarudyanUK to see up to the minute snaps and progress reports! 

They have been supported on their journey by an enterprising support crew, driving between the stops with all the bags, food and water, and spare parts for the bikes. See some of the images of the ride so far above. 

Staff from ADP’s Sherborne studio have also taken up the challenge of cycling from Sherborne to Delhi on static bikes. They started peddling in February and hope to finish the ride within the year. 

Both events aim to raise £15,000 to build Marudyan’s first community education facility. A typical project will be a two room building providing education for up to 100 children. The schools will be economical, constructed for local sustainable materials and easy to adapt to local climatic conditions.

The cycling events are taking place in memory of former ADP partner James Middleton-Stewart, who so sadly passed away last year.
