Crossing the Finish Line

On Wednesday 27th July, cadets from 84 Squadron completed their cycle challenge crossing the finish line in style and arriving at RAF High Wycombe...well in theory anyway!
The cadets have been working together throughout July to clock up a whopping 75miles (120Km) on the exercise bike. The challenge was set by Officer-in-Charge Rosie Robinson as part of the 75th Anniversary celebrations throughout 2016. To create the finish line, cadets created and decorated paper shirts which were strung across the main hall.
The route has taken them from Coventry Airport down past Silverstone (taking in a lap of the race course!), up Stokenchurch hill and down the other side into High Wycombe to the headquarters of the Royal Air Force. The 75 mile route was worked out methodically and plotted on maps in the unit to mark where they'd been.

Well Done everyone who pedalled and took part!
