Tim tackles charity bike tour

Carl F Groupco warehouse supervisor Tim Groves has tackled his longest cycle ride to date to raise money for the Sue Ryder Hospice charity. The Chiltern Cycling Festival, which was over 100 miles, included four of the tour of England’s biggest climbs. Team Sky’s support car was out front to give the riders a boost and lead the cyclists on the first quarter of a mile of the endurance event.

Prompted to do the challenge by the recent loss of a few close friends and a family member, Tim and friend Karl Richardson have to date raised £1,150. A third of the money has been donated by Tim’s generous work colleagues at Carl F Groupco. Tim maintains cycle fitness by completing a 17 mile round trip to work every day.
