The Business Micros team of Graeme Bailey, Keith Aspinall and Adrian Girling all successfully completed the Tower to Tower bike ride to raise money for the window industry's GM Fundraising organisation.

Setting off from the Eiffel Tower on Sunday, 10 September, they rode triumphantly up to Blackpool Tower on Saturday 16 September at the end of an exhausting 480 mile trip.

The bike ride was an enjoyable challenge for the three experienced cyclists who last year rode from John o'Groats to Lands End in aid of the same charity - children's hospice Hope House.

Sponsorship from customers, colleagues, suppliers and friends helped the Business Micros team contribute to an overall total of £35,000 which was a tremendous achievement.

Also taking part in the ride were other well known figures from the window industry including Gary Morton of GM Fundraising, Jeff Walsh, Terry Cottham, Alan Rothwell, Richard Gyde, Andrew Lamsdale and Dave Watts.
