We would like to take this time to congratulate Jason Jones, from Howards Peugeot/Hyundai Yeovil for completing a 310 mile bike ride in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

The Ride24 event started in Newcastle at 11am on Saturday 22nd and finished on Sunday the 23rd of August, in London. Around 400 people took part in the event, with the aim of completing the challenge within 24 hours, arriving at the finish line in Smithfield Market, London.

The scenic route took the cyclists through Tyne and past the Angel of the North, which carried along into the windy Yorkshire Hills, through York and then onto Humber and the flat Lincolnshire countryside. After passing through remote villages and quiet English countryside, the cyclists eventually reached the capitals skyline where the finish line awaited them.

After cycling all day and night, Jason made it to the finish line at 9:37am on the Sunday with a final time of 22 hours and 37 minutes. Only 132 of the cyclists completed the challenge in the 24 hour time period, and even though it wasn’t a race Jason was extremely proud to finish in 60th position.

So far, Jason has managed to raise an impressive £1031 in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported him.

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
