All Roads Lead to Rome

The cyclists, including Thanet CAB’s Simon Banks , have safely arrived in Rome.

They were accompanied into the City by the Rome Fire Brigade and welcomed by representatives of the Pope, as well as the British and Italian Governments.
They were then greeted at Solemn Vespers in St Peter's following which they were presented with their pilgrim certificates.

Along the way they calculate they have cycled 1200 miles and climbed well over 50000 feet. Sustenance was obtained from 600 loaves of bread, 1500 bananas, 600 croissants; 600 bowls of pasta and probably 200 pizzas.

All the cyclists have achieved a lifetime's dream, and at the same time raised thousands of pounds for local charities.
