Congratulations to our Marketing Manager Jason Rogers who completed the 9-day challenge to cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats. Jason took part in the Deloitte Ride Across Britain along with 700 riders, along the 980-mile route.
Jason commented, “It was tough, really tough, but I am delighted to have finished. The event was so professionally run, they did everything they could to help you cycle the 100 plus miles every day. The food was amazing, I did not stop eating to fuel the legs. I got used to sleeping in a tent after a few nights, but was delighted that the route stopped near home one evening and I could sleep in my own bed."
"It was hard though getting up the next morning, with the prospect of climbing up Glenshee. The camaraderie of the riders was also very special. Cycling through the amazing scenery of Scotland was my favourite part, the views were spectacular. Thanks for all the support everyone has given me, especially my very patient wife. Great to have raised over £1,500 for Cancer Research UK. This week back in work has been tough as tiredness is kicking in and the legs are aching.”
