They started at midnight and crossed the finish line after 22 hours of cycling, at 10.30pm the following day, in Broadway.
Olivia Pegrum, regional lettings director of Hamptons International's Western Region, said: "We are extremely proud of our heroic cyclists. It was a tremendous feat and one of both physical and mental endurance.
"Having started the cycle at midnight on Friday the team rode through the night with no sleep all the way through to 10.30pm the following evening, visiting all of Hamptons International western region's branches one by one along the way."
The challenge was organised and led by Sam Pagett, lettings negotiator at Hamptons International Cheltenham branch, who rode alongside both colleagues and friends.
Andrew Marshall, regional sales director of Hamptons International's Western region sales, said: "Well done to Sam Pagett and his team of cyclists for pulling out all the stops and completing their wonderful cycling challenge. "
