On Saturday 13th September, a team of 20 cyclists set off from Ripon to take part in the 2014 Sainsbury’s Big Bike Ride. Each rider represented their own store with their own story to tell. Raising funds for The Joseph Salmon Trust and representing Sainsbury’s Brighouse was Kieron Baker, 21.
“I like setting myself personal challenges whether is physical or educational. I also lost my mother to cancer when I was 17 and know what it feels like to lose somebody close.”
The Sainsbury’s Big Bike ride was certainly a challenge for wholesale nfl jerseys from china Kieron and it was a fitting time for the ride, following on from the Tour de France earlier in the year.
Kieron says “We started early in the morning from Ripon, North Yorkshire and went to various Sainsbury’s stores on the way including Harrogate, Bradford, Otley, Keighley, Halifax and finally Brighouse!
