A team of industry stalwarts led by catering equipment firm Mechline completed the Hospitality Action Sportive 102 Mile Charity bike ride last week to raise money for the industry charity.
The ‘Hairy Test Cycles’ team, comprising of Peter Galliford, Andy Coulthard, Nick Howe of Court Catering, Will Pitt of Stainless Supplies and Karl Stuckey of Nature First, battled through torrential rain and galeforce winds as they made their way through the Cotswolds.
They were part of more than 200 riders that took part in the event and finished just in time before the tents were blown off the lawns at the event HQ at Beaufort Polo Club.
“I don’t quite remember this description of the event on the invitation!” said Galliford. “Well done to the team and all those who foolishly braved it for finishing. Great effort, for a very worthwhile charity. And, very well done to Hospitality Action, to Penny and all those involved in the event – really well organised and managed, in very trying conditions.”
