Alastair is a keen cyclist and recently completed Jon o’ Groats to Land’s End with his training for the most part captured on his 30+ mile commute to the office, often taking in scenic detours! On completion of the Claudia Parsons Hall he organised a 200km ride with the project team from Loughborough in London to Loughborough in Loughborough to celebrate the opening. He is always looking for the next cycling adventure.
