AMP bike rideUK:  A team from air conditioning distributor AMP will be joining the estimated 3,000 cyclists taking part in Sunday’s London to Brighton bike ride.

The ride, in aid of the British Heart Foundation, will include a 30-strong team of AMP staff, family members, customers and suppliers making the 54-mile slog to the coast. The team has been sponsored by Toshiba, one of the AMP’s suppliers

The decision to participate is part of AMP’s 25th anniversary celebrations and a desire to mark the milestone year in many different, exciting ways – one of which is to raise as much as they can for charity.

As one of the team said: “We have a few accomplished bikers amongst us but most of us are novices and not been on a bike since childhood – which for some of us is many moons ago.”

So, if you’re watching on Sunday, the AMP team is the one with stabilisers. More importantly, whether you are spectating or not, donations to the cause would be gratefully received at http://www.justgiving.com/ampdreamteam.
