70 Miles For 70 Years

This year marks the 70th anniversary of 622 Volunteer Gliding Squadron and to commemorate this, the squadron has embarked on numerous events and activities around the country.

To mark the end of this special year 622 VGS over the Christmas period swapped the cockpit for the saddle and undertook a freezing 70 mile bike ride using a fleet of tandems and single bikes from our base, Upavon, to Old Sarum, our previous home and then onto Christchurch where the squadron was formed in 1944. The trip turned out to be very cold and hard work but a great time was had by all those who participated.

Our chosen charities were the RAFBF and local Air Ambulance. We managed to raise £1011.02p in our four buckets along the ride, which put us out of balance a little, and online we are so close to getting to successfully reaching our goal.
Help us to reach our target and beyond. Follow the link below to find out more information on the ride itself.
