Chloe & George cycle 240 miles to support the Urology Foundation
The annual BIKE4TUF saw 18 participants cycle 240 miles over the weekend of the 17th-19th September 2021. George Reynolds Director and Chloe Hill Sales Product Specialist participated raising an overall £1530.00 for The Urology Foundation. In total the group raised £15,878 through JustGiving.
Two groups of riders set off from London and met in Northamptonshire for dinner that evening. Saturday consisted of a scenic ride through the Cotswolds finishing in central Birmingham on the Sunday.

George commented “On day one as we left London there was heavy traffic and this proved challenging. The Cotswolds Hills, also known as the ridge of limestone hills, that stretches about 50 miles (80 km) across south-central England, were challenging on Day Two. As we cycled further into Birmingham, we reached what would have been the BAUS conference, but this was cancelled due to covid-19 restrictions. After three days of hard riding, we were instead welcomed by friends and family. My intention is to participate next year, and I look forward to the BAUS cycle in June."
Chloe Commented “It was a brilliant weekend with some astounding individuals and was by far the most difficult challenge I have ever faced within a three-day period. The weekend was full of ups and downs, cheers, and laughter, and we raised some money for a wonderful cause. I look forward to participating in next year’s challenge”
