On a cold and windy Sunday morning on the 12th of July, 165 cyclists lined up for the start of the Market Deeping Sportive from Bourne Grammar School. Riding up to 100 miles and all in aid of the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. By the time all the riders had returned to Bourne they would have travelled a total of 11850 miles. Supporting them at the four feed stations were a team of 18 volunteers +4 mobile teams. At the finish each rider was offered a hot drink home-made cakes and savouries by a team of ladies. Also on hand from the Stamford branch of Royal British Legion were Peter. Jimmy, Glen and Ian who assisted at the start and counted them all back in at the finish. This event couldn't have taken place without the support of Bourne Grammar School, volunteers and Marshall's.
