The cyclists (left to right) were Martin Howard, Phil Mackay, Rob Smith, Ken MacGregor, Dave Robinson, Alex Douglas and Denis Cormican.
Clients and RNS partners got on their bikes to help mark the RAF’s 100th anniversary.
The route of the C2C2C annual charity cycle ride around Lincolnshire was changed this year to take in 14 Bomber Command centres.
Partners Rob Smith and Alex Douglas completed the ride with clients Martin Howard, Phil Mackay, Dave Robinson and Denis Cormican plus his friend Ken Smith.
Rob said it had been a memorable day, with each of the riders completing 106 miles.
“Phil and I gave ourselves an additional challenge and rode from Cleethorpes to the start in Lincoln and back which made it 173 miles,” he said.
“It is a well organised event and, instead of going to the coast, took in some of the RAF bases which helped earn Lincolnshire its reputation as Bomber County.
“The weather was boiling hot without a cloud in the sky, making up for the freezing cold rain of the year before!”
Feed stations were located at International Bomber Command Memorial Centre (30 miles) and Walesby Village Hall (85) with a hog roast lunch at Hemingby (63).
Each participant paid £30, with the event proceeds distributed between International Bomber Command Memorial Centre, St Barnabas’ Hospice in Lincoln and Skegness charity Cycling without Age.
