Day 2: Acorns Italian Alps Challenge

19 June 2019

Day two of the Cheltenham Town staff charity cycle ride to raise funds for Acorns Children's Hospice saw the team climb over 11,000 feet in the Italian Alps.

Taking on two mountains, they covered 100 kilometres in a route that included 112 hairpins.

In total on day two they spent six hours and 15 minutes in the saddle.

The team of assistant boss Russell Milton, Senior Sports Therapist Gavin Crowe, under-18s manager Pete Haynes, Barry Roberts and support driver Gary Haynes are taking on the four day cycling challenge in the Italian mountains, in an attempt to raise £2,000 for Acorns Children's Hospice.

Acorns are the club's charity partners for the 2018/19 season and provides vital care for babies, children and young people with life limiting and life threatening conditions across the region.
