‘Willows' Wheelers’ from left to right: Toby Gemmill (Orthopaedics), Chris Shales (Soft Tissue Surgery), Stephen Baines (Soft Tissue Surgery) and Fergus Allerton (Internal Medicine)
Recently the ‘Willows' Wheelers’ completed their first organised event, the Change Gear Sportive organised by Tudor Grange Leisure Centre. This was Solihull’s first Change Gear Sportive event.
Sportives are non-competitive, mass participation cycling events. The aim is to encourage as many people as possible to enjoy cycling. Routes are mapped, test ridden, fully signposted and marshalled to encourage cyclists of all levels.
‘Willows' Wheelers’ comprises of Veterinary Specialists, Stephen Baines (Soft Tissue Surgery), Chris Shales (Soft Tissue Surgery), Toby Gemmill (Orthopaedics) and Fergus Allerton (Internal Medicine). They all took part in a 72 mile ride through the Warwickshire and Worcestershire countryside, which was only marred slightly by a torrential downpour halfway around and two inconvenient punctures.
The team will continue to build on this success and will be taking part in some additional events in September - take a look at the following links to see where the ‘Willows' Wheelers’ will be appearing next, or why not join in and take part yourself - you might see the 'Willows' Wheelers' on route!
