The 2015 event season has well and truly kicked off with the fourth Mitie London Revolution taking place this weekend. Blessed with glorious sunshine throughout the entire weekend, over 1,500 cyclists hit the start line in high spirits to take on the challenging course with support from many familiar faces in the Threshold crew.
At the end of day one, riders were welcomed into Ascot base camp to shower, change and bask in sunshine whilst waiting for mates to cross the line. This year the base camp once again offered a festival atmosphere as they relaxed in the outdoor bars, enjoyed some yoga in the Mitie tent and were even met Herbert the Dulux dog.
Across the two days, we laid on mountains of food at the basecamps and at pit stops to power everyone to the finish. Never ones to let things go to waste though, we donated leftover bananas, flapjacks, and cereal bars to the Lord’s Larder; a community based Food Bank in Devon close to our storage facility. This food will be packed into emergency food parcels and helps support those less well catered for than those taking part in the Mitie London Revolution. We don’t pretend it’s going to solve the world’s problems but we are always looking for simple ways to get our events helping local communities.
If you weren’t there, here are a few comments to give you a sense of what you missed:
I can very clearly say that it was BY FAR the best cycling event I have attended to date. Credit to Threshold and I have registered my interest for 2016 already!
Outstanding organisation, route signage and overall care of riders with bountiful supplies of essential drinks and food. Thank you to everyone who looked after and cheered us on!
What a fantastic event. So well organised and an amazing experience. Thrilled to have been part of it.
A good start to what will hopefully be a great year.
