The 660 Tour of Britain have completed their epic challenge!
A Group of six serving personnel from 660 Signal Troop have set themselves a target of cycling 1,236 miles around Britain to raise funds for Blesma and the Royal Signals charity.
The team hit the road on 28 June and have succeeded in completing their mission in just 11 days!
“I took up cycling last year as an escape during the first lockdown, and I got the bug,” said Staff Sergeant Jon Wilkinson, who has served with the regiment for 18 years. Jon was interviewed by BFBS Radio on Instagram live, and you can watch the full interview here.
“I came up with the idea of visiting each of the 11 regiment headquarters, as previously 660 Signal Troop was part of 11 EOD Search Regiment.”
Starting at Carver Barracks in Essex, the team travelled anticlockwise around Britain before finally returning to the Wimbish barracks 11 days later. The legs of the trip varied from 57 to 142 miles!
The team is hoping to raise £6,000 for the two charities, and you can still support them here.
