Club Peloton pedElle 2022 - Vienna to Budapest
Forsters are extremely proud of their amazing team that took part in pedElle 2022 with Club Peloton.
pedElle celebrates women within real estate – “creating a unique team effort that forms memories and friendships for life.”
Over three days, Natasha Rees, Helen Marsh, Nichola Padget, and Jessica Scarlett cycled through three countries: Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary covering 450km (280 miles). The team travelled all the way from Vienna to Budapest, passing amazing landscapes and beautiful cities.
This was a fundraising effort, with all money raised going to fantastic charities: Coram, CYCLISTS FIGHTING CANCER LTD, MSA Trust and the Tom AP Rhys Pryce Memorial Trust.
The longest day of this year’s ride at 190kms, riders were treated to views of the Danube, Hainburg Beach, and Bratislava (the capital of Slovakia). After a long day of cycling, they arrived at Chateau Appony, a stunning white spa hotel, for a well-deserved rest.
This day, the team were faced with 105kms and three brutal climbs. After cycling through the beautiful Slovakian countryside, the team headed in Nova Bana for lunch. The last leg of the ride was through the mountains, venturing on their third climb of the day. After winding their way upwards, they were rewarded with a superb descent down the other side, taking them into the beautiful medieval town of Banská Štiavnica. What a way to end the second day.
For the final day, an early 7am start left the riders facing the last 153kms of their journey. This day saw them climbing through towns dotted around lakes, with fantastic views of the countryside. After 99kms, they crossed the border between Slovakia and Hungary. Once the riders finally reached Budapest, they were treated to beautiful views of the city together with celebratory drinks sponsored by Forsters, which were well deserved and well received!
