Team Norbar Cycles for Cancer Charity

Team Norbar Cylists 
 Team Norbar at the Classic Oxfordshire Sponsored Bike Ride on 8th May 2011 for Against Breast Cancer

Team Norbar's 17 cyclists raised approximately £1850 for the Against Breast Cancer charity by taking part in the Classic Oxfordshire Sponsored Bike Ride (CLOX 2011) on Sunday 8th May.

Representing the precision engineering company Norbar Torque Tools, based in Banbury, the cyclists chose the longer of the two courses proposed by the charity, exposing themselves to strong winds and deep standing water which in some places stretched across the entire road from one side to the other.

A record number of over 1000 registered riders took part in CLOX 2011, taking on either a 30 mile or 60 mile route to raise vital funds for breast cancer research. The riders were started on their way by broadcaster and former Olympic Gymnast Suzanne Dando.

Team Norbar leader Tim Bloor said after the ride: "It was a fantastic achievement to get 17 people to complete the 60 mile course, but we are now going to punish ourselves still further by taking on the Blenheim 100." This 100 mile cylcling event is also to raise money for the breast cancer charity and is being staged at the Bike Blenheim Palace Festival on Sunday 21st August.

Enthusiasm for cycling has been growing in popularity at Norbar in recent years, with Team Norbar increasing from three people in 2009 to seven in 2010 and now its current level of 17 active members.
