Twelve cyclists, including Exertis directors and representatives from its vendor partners, took part in the event which was supported by Dell, Fujitsu, Samsung, Lenovo, Netgear, BT/Hive and Medion.

Cycling almost 200 miles from Basingstoke to Shaftesbury and back, the riders encountered a few traumas with five punctures, one buckled wheel and a broken chain all within the first three hours, followed by a knee injury, some strained muscles and quite a few sore spots.

Exertis Purchasing Director Mark Kahr said: “We are proud to have raised so much for our nominated charity Naomi House, for children and young adults with life limiting illnesses. A big thank you to all the riders and particularly the sponsors that supported us with their time and donations.”
