The fifth edition of the Forcia Building Life Cycle took place on Saturday 14 September 2019 in Hassocks, this year’s event had 200 property industry cyclists taking part in the 77km race. Thankfully the weather was yet again on their side, the sun was beating down and the race began with beautiful blue skies over Ditchling Beacon.
The competitors gathered at 8am for registration and breakfast, the first team set off at 9am prompt. One of the Forcia team commented;
“As the cyclists were reaching the start point the buzz and excitement was extremely evident. Our own team Forcia were ready and present also hoping for our first win with having a stronger team than ever before.
For many cyclists, this was their first-ever race and the longest distance they had ever cycled and although physically exhausted with many tired legs many competitors were thrilled with their achievement. We also had a few all-female teams enter the ride this year, which we were delighted with and pleased to see more female riders take part in the day creating many mixed teams entering.”
At the finish line drinks, BBQ, and music was awaiting the somewhat tired cyclists who never imagined they could complete the distance, some riders even decided to stay overnight at the campsite and carry on the celebrations!
The Forcia team member continued;
“Prizes and trophies were handed out to a number of the competitors and it has become evident that The Forcia Building Life Cycle has grown from strength to strength with more competitors taking part every year. We welcome new riders into the fold and repeat riders back.”
The Forcia Building Life Cycle raised a fantastic amount of £764.96 for us – a huge thank you and well done to everyone who took part.
