Superfit legal team notch up 2,909 kilometres in charity success

23rd November 2021

A team from Sheffield legal practice, Grasyons, has outridden fifty other firms from across the UK to become runner up in the hotly contested ‘Tour De Law’ cycling event.

The gruelling charity event saw ten staff from Graysons notch up a staggering 2,909 kilometres in the week-long event – an average of nearly 291 kilometres per employee!

The team rode their bikes on the open road; at home or at the gym and raised £1,700 for the Breast Cancer Now charity – smashing their original £1,000 target.        

Graysons’ team leader Joshua Davies said: 

“It was probably one of the most physically and mentally demanding challenges of our lives. Cycling nearly 3000 kilometres between ten of us isn’t the easiest thing to do and you really have to push yourself to keep going.  We all gave it everything to raise as much money for the charity as we could – whilst trying to win the distance competition of course!  We are very proud of ourselves and that our efforts raised so much more than our target of £1,000 for Breast Cancer Now.”
