Old Boys embark on 1000km Charity Bike Ride in memory of Old Boy Mike Smythe

On 4th March a team of fundraisers, including old boys Matt Smythe and Kieran Tames are setting out on a 1000km cycle challenge in memory of Mike Smythe, Matt’s dad, and himself an old Ambrosian.
Mike sadly died in 2015 from prostate cancer.
The ride is inspired by Mike’s rugby career and will take in the school and all of his clubs – Broughton Park and Sale in Manchester, Richmond in south west London, and finally Poitiers, France. The aim is to finish on the 11th in time for Poitier’s fixture that weekend. This will involve the team covering up to 140km (85miles) per day.
