Three auctioneers at Greenslade Taylor Hunt are celebrating the end to a successful cycle challenge where they have raised more than £4,000 for Cancer Research UK.

Andy Clements, James Wotton and Jamie Batt, who all work at Sedgemoor Auction Centre, swapped the sale ring for the saddle and cycled 230 miles around the GTH offices in Somerset, Devon and Dorset.

Andy said: “Travelling across Exmoor from Minehead to South Molton was one of the toughest legs, which we were expecting, but quite the scale of some of the hills pushed us to our limits.

“It was on Exmoor and the first day when we remarkably had our one and only accident when James didn’t make it all the way through a ford and also our one and only puncture that resulted from the same ford.”

Despite this inauspicious start the trio managed to complete the challenge in three-and-a-half days, a full half a day ahead of schedule.

All three were back at work the next day with no plans for further cycling forays.
