At Triteq we are used to seeing Allan Caple, a key member of our Industrial Design Team, arriving each day by bike, but he has now taken his committment to a whole new level!
Blackheath, London. Saturday 5th July 2014. 300 excited riders start out on a journey through the night they won't forget. An opening 90 mile dash to Dover - the ferry won't wait! Darkness falls as we reach France; lights on, heads up, the pelotons speed through the night on wide, quiet roads. Fuelled by determination, stamina and much welcomed pit stops, dawn breaks. Legs are now weary but soon the morning haze lifts. Spirits rise as the French capital nears - at last that finish line is nearly in sight, though the ever present clock continues to quietly tick down.
Allan will be one of the intrepid competitors and as a company, we will be focus all our fund raising efforts on supporting him.
We will be following his progress throughout the coming months, so look out for news updates.
