Minibike Madness

James Sims Williams, Director of Freckenham-based Woolley, has
completed a gruelling two day, 54 mile walk ‘ the distance of two
marathons’
  accompanying his brother Giles on his quest to complete the
London to Brighton charity bike ride on one of the smallest bikes ever
made.

The bike, called a minibike or monkeybike has five inch wheels, no gears
and moves more slowly than walking pace. This meant that James and
Giles were walking and cycling continually from 7 am to 8 pm on Saturday
16 June and 7 am to 7 pm on Sunday 17 June to complete the race. They
finished in 27,000th place but raised a fantastic £2,700 for the
Multiple Sclerosis Society and British Heart Foundation.

Commenting on their participation, James Sims Williams, who’s 29 years
old and a chartered surveyor, said: ‘It was a completely mad thing to
do and was really hard work- but we’ve raised a great deal of money for
a charity we really care about so that makes it worthwhile.’

Woolley is a land and project management company with specific
expertise in the areas of property, finance, project management,
environmental understanding and appraisal. It works for a wide range of
clients, including blue-chip companies, private individuals, public
sector bodies, environmental organisations and academic institutions.
