A group of 5 cycling enthusiasts cycled from London to Lincoln on a four-day journey just in time for the launch of the Knight’s Trail. The ride by the Knights on Bikes was to commemorate the 800th anniversary of the Battle of Lincoln.
It was also a ride inspired by Pedal Pride, one of the 36 Lincoln Knights showcased around the city on from 20th May – 3rd September.
Pedal Pride is a cycling-themed knight painted by Erin Fleming in a tribute to her ex-professional cyclist father Brian Fleming. Pedal Pride is the chosen knight sponsored by Nicholsons Chartered Accountants.
The five men comprised of David Jockel, David Burgess, Simon Hall, Richard Hallsworth and Paul Harrison arrived at King’s Cross earlier to support Visit Lincoln and the Knight’s Trail in promoting tourism in Lincoln.
Simon Hall and Richard Hallsworth are two staff from Nicholsons Chartered Accountants who joined the group to mark this special occasion.
“This will be a great way for us to commemorate the Battle of Lincoln through our love for cycling and support to local artists who have painted the Knights” said Richard Hallsworth, Director of Nicholsons Chartered Accountant.
“Our active lifestyle and love for cycling goes in hand with Erin’s artwork which is why we decided to choose Erin as our artist” added Richard Hallsworth.
