Congratulations to Andy Yates who has been awarded the Club Peloton Award for 'Promoting Cycling'!
At Webb Yates Andy is keen to promote cycling, starting a cycle to work scheme, setting up a Webb Yates Strava Club and persuading anyone with even a vague interest in cycling to participate! In June we organized our own Webb Yates charity event “Bridging the Country”, where we ran, cycled and kayaked 140miles from Tower Bridge to the Clifton Suspension Bridge. Andy really made the event possible by checking the route, cycling the entire route in advance (and back again!) and checking all of the changeover locations. In preparation for the event he organized weekly training rides, encouraging everyone to get on their bikes and teaching us all how to ride in a peloton.
Andy is always willing to offer cycling help and advice to anyone who asks so we’re really pleased to see his enthusiasm rewarded! Andy was presented with his award at the Club Peloton Gala Dinner, which was held in the glorious surroundings of the Lee Valley Velodrome on 5th October.
