Members of the 278 Battery Royal Artillery were on hand to launch the Pedal for Scotland MadeBrave® Team Challenge. The Gunners, who have entered a 15 strong team across the 50 mile Classic Challenge and 110 mile Big Belter rides taking place on Sunday 6th September, were joined by MadeBrave® CEO, Andrew Dobbie, and Cycling Scotland Chief Executive, Keith Irving to fly the flag for Scotland’s biggest bike event.
The MadeBrave® Team Challenge gives companies the chance to enjoy either the Classic Challenge or the Big Belter together as a team. Starting in Glasgow and finishing in Edinburgh’s iconic Murrayfield Stadium, riders can enjoy a host of added benefits including transport and bag transfer, queue jump for catering, VIP finishers lounge, team photos, prizes and more.
Andrew Dobbie, MadeBrave® CEO, said, “We’ve been working with Pedal for Scotland for years and we love the event, so it’s brilliant to have the opportunity to sponsor the Team Challenge. Our team from the agency will be there on the day and we’re encouraging our friends and clients to get involved with the MadeBrave® Team Challenge too.”
Lt Col Frank Ward, Commanding Officer 105 Regt RA said,”It’s fantastic to see so many reservists participate in this demanding event. They will represent both the unit and the Army in this local event to show the opportunities available in the Reserves and to encourage their personal development throughout the training and during this arduous event.”
Neil Feltham, 278 Bty Cycle Team Captain, said’ “The 278 Battery Royal Artillery are already keen sportsmen and women and the MadeBrave Team Challenge not only offers the opportunity for our members to take part in a fun and sociable cycling event, it allows us to engage with the communities in which we are based through our training for the big day on 6th September.”
Cycling Scotland Chief Executive, Keith Irving, said, ”Pedal for Scotland offers a great day out for work colleagues and we’re delighted to have MadeBrave® and the 278 Battery Royal Artillery involved in the Corporate Team Challenge. Together, we can ensure more people can enjoy cycling with colleagues.
“A healthy, active workforce helps business productivity so we would encourage businesses to both take part in Pedal for Scotland and register to become a Cycle Friendly Employer, enabling more people to cycle throughout the year.”
