Cyclists reach end of epic race

Have your say

two engineering students have completed an epic fundraising bike ride across the continent.

Rob Thornton, a postgraduate researcher at The University of Sheffield, and undergraduate Dave Hayden finished the 1,367km trip from Sheffield to Stuttgart in Germany in 13 days.

The pair, both members of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, completed the feat to raise cash for charities Cancer Research UK and Engineers without Borders.

Rob said: “This cycle trip was a hugely rewarding if exhausting experience.”
