In 2018 as in all recent years there was a strong contingent of Ditcham Park riders joining the event.
Back in 2005 a then pupil, Chris McQuade persuaded one of the school’s teachers, Will Stretch to help him recruit a team of students to participate in our events. He had heard that formerly Will had been a teacher at Hayling School where among other things he had started a cycling club. Will agreed and then became the inspiration for the growth of a cycling culture at Ditcham Park which has led to the hosting of national school cycling championships and produced several semi-pro riders. Moreover the school has now raised over a quarter of a million pounds for charity through participation in our event.
Well done Will and all those pupils and parents who have supported him.
