Freestyle 360 have cycled from Coventry to Paris to raise money for Children In Need.
318 Miles Cycles for Charity
The fitness and personal training centre, who often take part in fund raising events, covered 318 miles between 7th-11th September. The team had 71 members in total, and split up in to groups to travel safely. The event was a huge success, and raised over £50,000 for Children In Need, who currently support around 2,500 projects in the UK which work to help disadvantaged children.
How Brentwood Were Able to Help
To cover such a large distance quickly, and keep all members in touch, Freestyle 360 approached Brentwood to provide a communications solution. As a keen supporter of many charities, we jumped at the chance to help with this project.
In order to ensure the groups of riders could communicate over long distances, the Lugra PTT solution was provided. This solution operates on a cellular network, and allows smart phones and tablets to be used as a two way radio via an application. Equally, users can operate Lugra PTT with a two way radio device, which Fitness 360 chose to do. They were provided with a mixture of the L350 and L300 devices.
The Lugra PTT solution was ideal for the event, as there are no global boundaries, and group calling is made easy. Operation was easy for users, as they simply had to press a button on their device to connect. The ride was a great success, and raised much needed funds for a wonderful charity.
