Publisher Mark Seton and IT and Website Manager Neil Spinney took part in an 800 kilometre charity cycle ride ‘The Wrong Way Back’ in June last year.
On Friday 27th June they were part of a presentation party which handed over a cheque for £2000 to Macmillan Cancer Support.
The ride took place in June 2013 and started in Wincanton, Somerset, UK and headed to Minehead on the north Somerset coast and then headed down to Lands End. The route then heads back to Weymouth along the south coast where it then takes the riders back home to Wincanton. It is a week of long days, steep hills and is a route set to challenge any rider.
The total amount raised by ‘The Wrong Way Back’ in 2013 for Macmillan and Help for Heroes was over £4000.
The Wrong Way Back (www.twwb.co.uk) was founded by Neil Spinney and Mark Henley in 2010 having been conceived in 2009 after too many beers at a Blur concert!
MDM were proud to support the event and the International Fire Fighter magazine logo was emblazoned on the riders shirts (http://www.mdmpublishing.com/mdmmagazines/magazineiff/)
The next outing of ‘The Wrong Way Back’ takes place from July 18th – 25th 2015. For more information or to discuss advertising opportunities please contact Neil at [email protected] or give him a call in the office 01935 426428.
