110 Pro Coy 1RMP Provost Triangle Cycle
A group of eight individuals from 110 Pro Coy, 1RMP are cycling the distance of 245km in two days in aid of the charity BLESMA.
They will begin their journey on Campbell Barracks, Hohne at 8am today, March 26, and finish at Normandy Barracks, Sennelager at 4pm tomorrow, March 27.
The eight will be stopping at a number of the stations along the way, including:
Campbell Barracks, Hohne

The challenge is to help raise £10,000 for BLESMA and the Central Benevolent Fund, before they tackle the main event cycling from Gold Beach in Normandy in France to Normandy Barracks in a few months time.

The 44-year-old Gulf War veteran now has two published books under his belt and has just completed writing his third thriller.
He said: “I love to write because I have so many stories in my imagination and I just want to share them.
“The best part is seeing the faces of those who have read my work and the smiles my books bring.
“Sure, a big pay day would be great but for the time being someone coming up to me or posting on the web saying how much they enjoyed my book is worth a lot.”
The professional band, which features a former Serviceman, are currently touring the UK but would love the opportunity to create a great atmospheric Irish night for BFG troops.
