Please join us in congratulating Damien Ward, our Technical and Compliance Manager, for completing the grueling 100 mile bike ride this month for Charity. Everyone here at Checkmate Fire wish to say Congratulations to Damien Ward for completing the Prudential Ride London 100 on Sunday 2nd August.
Damien raised more than £1,225.00
What an amazing achievement for Damien to complete the Ride London Surrey 100, and not to mention that it entailed a 4am start, torrential rain, mechanical failures and failing breaks due to the unexpected wet weather. Out of 25,000 riders around 5,000 did not finish the course due to crashes and succumbing to the harshness of the event. Damien and Luke cycled for an exhaustive 7 hours and 28 minutes, with a total time on the road of nine and half hours.
On behalf of Checkmate Fire, we send our thoughts to the family and friends of Nigel Swanson who died tragically while cycling in the Prudential Ride London Surrey 100.
