Participants of the Foundation’s Tour de Lockdown challenge have cycled a combined distance of 3,340km in just seven weeks.
The challenge was launched as national lockdown restrictions were imposed for a third time to encourage people to get active from the comfort of their own homes.
A total of 12 participants clocked up enough miles to take us from the Keepmoat Stadium all the way to Cairo, Egypt.
“The participants threw themselves into the challenge and clocked up enough miles to take us from Doncaster to Egypt”, explained Foundation Health and Wellbeing coordinator Lewis O’Connor.
“Throughout the lockdowns, we’ve always looked at ways we can engage our Home Goals participants to keep them moving, and our cycling challenges always prove particularly popular.
“We’d like to thank everyone who got involved and encourage them to keep riding as the nicer weather approaches!”
All Tour de Lockdown participants tracked their distance covered and submitted it into the grand total.
The category winners are as follows;
LEADERS (prize winners)
Female 35-55 = Claire Howle 84.82km
Female over 55 = Fiona Smith 339.81km
Male 35 = John Waters 1200.13km
Male over 55 = Bob Allan 343.06km
