The challenge its self, is as a team we need to cover the distance of each Tour De France stage (some of them over 200km) and if we managed to complete each stage as we did then the company donate to a local charity of the teams choosing.
This is a worldwide event over the full Ineos & PetroIneos business so there are teams from America, Asia other parts of Europe all trying to complete the challenge in order to raise money for charity.
Our team at Grangemouth is made up of cyclists of all levels from Stuart who is part of a club and regularly does 100km rides to people who are just beginning and do much shorter distances, the aim is never for one or 2 people to cover the days distance we encourage everyone to get out and contribute no matter how far they can go. Stuart would send a daily email encouraging everyone and giving an update of the teams progress and letting us know what the distance of that days stage distance was.
For me personally who has struggled with mental health in the past and still does now I find cycling as much a benefit for my mind as I do for my body it’s a great way to get out and just have some time to reflect and asses what’s been going on and taking the time to put things in to perspective.
It’s been a great honour to be able to donate the money to FDAMH and a lot of my motivation to get out on the bike on the particularly wet days was to make sure we achieved our goal and were able to make the donation to your fantastic organization.
