Martin Arnold are once again proud to be supporting the Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) with their annual Ride with a Veteran event over the weekend on the 15th and 16th of July.
Our team will consist of Jim Martin, Tom Hopkins, David Powell, Chris Los, Sam Risby and Alastair Crundwell.
We shall be setting off on Friday 15th July for our 150-mile journey through the Kent countryside on Day 1 before boarding a ferry and heading over to France and Belgium to complete Day 2, finishing at the Menin Gate Memorial in Ypres where we will attend the Last Post Ceremony. After two years of cycling from Aylesford to the National Cycling Memorial near Birmingham, it will be a welcome return to Europe.
As always, the ride offers a wonderful opportunity to ride with the Veterans of the charity and hear their stories whilst raising a fantastic sum of money for the RBLI. With every penny raised, Royal British Legion Industries can provide safe, warm housing and ensure everyone has a fair opportunity to gain employment, regardless of health conditions or disability.

Jim and Tom have already started to update the blog with their training pictures, and the whole team will be adding to this as we head towards July!
