Earlier this month we posted about the upcoming Smart Works cycle challenge. Between Friday 2nd March and Thursday 8th March the DuoBoots team managed the 500 mile bike ride and so far have raised almost £500 for the Smart Works charity!


The team cycled the equivalent distance between the cities Smart Works operates; London, Reading, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle and Edinburgh. This was a real challenge for the team; who with the exception of Tim - are far from seasoned cyclists!

The group spin session was the highlight - a two hour stint where the team cycled over 120 miles in total! The cycle ride ended on International Women’s Day, by which time the “Scrambled Legs” team had lived up to their name, but had a great feeling of accomplishment!


Smart Works is an amazing charity which helps disadvantaged women get back into work, by providing sessions on interview technique and styling. Clients attend a session where they receive a capsule wardrobe - which sometimes includes a pair of Duo boots - so they look and feel their very best at a job interview.
