Monster Bike and Hike

Martin was one of Brodies LLP‘s team for this year’s Monster Bike and Hike, a charitable event raising money for Maggies Cancer Care Centres. The challenge involves cycling 30 miles from Fort William to Fort Augustus, then hiking the remaining 40 miles of the Great Glen Way from Fort Augustus to Inverness, all within 24 hours. The Brodies team comfortably beat this target, finishing at 3:05am on Sunday morning, with a time of 19 hours exactly.

Thanks to internal fundraising events, and external sponsorship (including sponsorship from fellow Roxburgh Reivers), the team are well on their way to meeting their fundraising target of £3,000.
