SMALL STEPS: NIAGARA TO NEW YORK

Capri shirtCycling from one of nature’s greatest feats, Niagara Falls, to one of mankind’s greatest feats, New York City, is no walk in the park. Capri Consulting is proud to support Small Steps on their 740.3 km voyage over 7 days through Canada and USA. The previous blog post describes only a few of the many great things the charity does for special needs children in Solihull. Here is a brief day-by-day account of the trip.

Day 1: After arriving at Niagara Falls on 2nd August, the group made final preparations on their bikes before they set off on their first day’s ride on 3rd August. They cycled from Niagara Falls to Buffalo, crossing the American border.

Day 2: The group cycled 112km from Buffalo to Olean. They started at 6am to avoid the midday heat. Day 2 saw some difficulties with many punctures due to gravelly roads.

Day 3: Day 3 was another early start as the group cycled 131km from Olean to Wellsboro. Spirits were still very high.

Day 4: The group cycled from Wellsboro to Towanda. With very hilly start the route was quite tough, but at the end of the day, 400 km had been completed and 340 km remained.victory pose

Day 5: The cyclists travelled 122km from Towanda to Wilkes-Barre with huge hill climbs and 5000 feet of elevation.

Day 6: The group embarked on their longest stretch of cycling of 138km from Wilkes-Barre to Stanhope.

The last leg of the trip was from Stanhope to Newark, just outside of New York. After such a long and strenuous trip, a sense of achievement was felt throughout the group as they went the extra mile in order to raise money for the Small Steps charity and bring a smile to the many children with special needs that the charity helps.

We at Capri Consulting believe that business and social enterprise should go hand in hand. We feel the responsibility to support charities that aid social welfare and we look forward to doing so in the future.

We would like to congratulate every team member and their families for their effort & dedication! Well done !!
