Organised by Challenge Adventure Charities (which was founded by our chairman Stuart Mason Elliott), this year’s ride starts on 28th September at Arras and ends 3 days and 550 miles later in Alsace.
We have 3 teams consisting of a total of 12 employees taking part this year.
As a first-timer to the annual challenge and as the only female entrant from Elliotts, HR Advisor Lyn Rickman said, “I’d never cycled much before this, but I like to set myself new challenges. Matt Adlington has been brilliant and got me used to my new road bike and how to use the gears. Now I’m cycling 4 times a week – 2 shorter rides of 10-15 miles and 2 longer ones.
“I’m great on the flats but I’m dreading the hills – however I’m very determined. Hopefully I can encourage more women to sign up next year!”
The rest of the Elliotts line up consists of: Tom Elliott (Managing Director), Stuart Mason Elliott (Chairman), Matt Adlington (Sales Manager), Andrew Drummond (Engineered Wood Product Manager), Steven Webber (Operations Manager), Ed Butcher (Insulation & Drylining Product Manager), Sam Bull (Sales – Bricks), Steve Thomas (Sales Rep – Bishop’s Waltham), Chris Brierley (Roofing Specialist), Ben Stone (Branch Manager – Christchurch) and Lewis Channer (Sales).
