Hörmann UK cycle coast-to-coast for charity

David Newcombe, the managing director of Hörmann (Ltd) UK, Europe's largest manufacturer of garage and entrance doors, is set to get on his bike in September in the name of charity.
The sponsored charity ride will see David be joined by three fellow riders. This will not be the team's first ride, in 2011 they cycled 833 miles from the South to the North of the United Kingdom from Lizard Point in England, to Dunnet Head in Scotland.

This time however, instead of going South to North, they are changing direction and are travelling the width of the UK and Ireland from the most westerly tip of Southern Ireland in Dingle, County Kerry over to the most easterly point of England in Lowestoft, Suffolk.

Crossing three countries in eight days, from 7 to 13 September the team will cycle 580 miles with all of the proceeds being divided between Cancer Research UK and the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance.

The cycle ride has been arranged by Hörmann's Transport Manager, Mick Dunne, who shall be accompanying the cyclists on their journey and offering encouragement along the way.

On facing the challenge David Newcombe said: 
“I cycle quite regularly but that doesn't mean that this will be easy by any stretch of the imagination!
“Some days we will be cycling over 90 miles and we have to cross the mountainous valleys of South Wales which I think will be the hardest part, but it's great to be able to help such fantastic causes and to hopefully raise a large sum of money for them.”

The ride has received substantial support from not only Hörmann but also from many other Leicestershire companies including Exodus Financial Services and Steven Sanderson Transport. Further support comes from Tony Marlow from LanGuard Vegetation Management Specialists, who is supplying the support van that will follow the cyclists on their 580 mile journey.
