SEC Group Pedals to Paris for Transaid

Three SEC Group heroes have just returned from Paris after an exhausting 240 mile bike ride. Steve Watts, Gary Kirk and Dean Kahl set off from London with 55 other riders, and were in the saddle for three days for the Transaid London to Paris Cycle Challenge.

Then the cyclists had a well-earned sleep on the overnight ferry to Caen before cycling 85 miles to Évreux.

On the final day they 'only' had to cycle 73 miles to the centre of Paris.

One of the hardest parts of the journey was taking on the infamous 17% gradient Bexley Hill in West Sussex. A challenging climb where Dean achieved the 3rd best time of all the challenge participants.

However, it was all worth it as they cycled through the centre of Paris around the Arc de Triomphe and down the Champs-Élysées finishing at the iconic Eiffel Tower in a peloton of 58 riders.

The team would like to pass on their thanks to all their corporate sponsors and personal donations that have been made, including: Madison, Cariad Marketing, TekOne Technologis, Storax, BrayFoxSmith, HG Timber, Orbital Climate Solutions, ILG, Elite Electrics, Warehouse Partners, RH Logistics, Aitchison Raffety, JP Conveyors, Knight Frank, Mirek Piskun, Air Business, Lambert Smith Hampton and Edd's Bikes.
