A quick update on Reid Anderton’s attempt to raise $100,000 for charity and claim the Guinness World Record for the ‘fastest time to reach 10,000km cycling’. Unfortunately, a faulty fitness tracker and food preparation delays at his refueling breaks put Reid behind so early on, that achieving the world record was mentally and physically beyond his reach.
Despite this, he refused to give up on his commitment to ride 10,000km. Realising he could not achieve this on his own, he put out a call to the cycling community and the challenge became a team effort. Over 100 cyclists stepped up to the challenge (including our GM Malcolm van Basten). Collectively, they reached 10,000km on Sunday 19 July.
Although Reid did not claim a Guinness World Record this time, he has been an inspiration to many around him and has raised a considerable amount of money and awareness for Charity Build. It has been incredible to watch his determination and spirit.
A huge congratulations to Reid, his support team, the cyclists who clocked up many kilometres and everyone who donated. Royal Foods is proud to have been a part of Reid’s journey and to be a sponsor.
