Following on from the success of last year’s fundraising event, Straumann UK has announced the second intercontinental Straumann Charity Bike Ride.
Commencing on Tuesday 2 September from Milan, Italy the ride will finish at Straumann headquarters in Basel, Switzerland on Saturday 6 September.
Headed by managing director, Stephen Booth and consisting of several members of the Straumann UK team, alongside some very loyal customers, the group will be taking in the cultural sights of Austria, Liechtenstein and Germany during the five-day journey.
With the charity bike ride including one of the most iconic routes through the Stelvio Pass – 2757m (9045 feet), the dedicated cyclists will be travelling on the highest paved mountain pass in the eastern Alps, and the second highest in the Alps, which is a definitive test of mental and physical strength and endurance!
The goal is for each person taking part to raise a minimum of £1000 in sponsorship money and Straumann are ultimately aiming to raise over £30,000 for the chosen charities, Bridge2aid and the Cleft Lip and Palate Association (CLAPA).
