Invited to take part by British Gypsum’s electrical engineer Graham Pell, TIS were delighted to be a part of a team made up of 100 riders.
The route which involved a gruelling 100-mile cycle from Barrow-upon-Soar to Skegness brought a mixture of weather conditions however didn’t stop our guys from reaching the finish line with a ride time of just over 6 hours.
Chris Catchpole said, “It was a great opportunity to be a part of the ride and support our new customer. It was a fantastic atmosphere and everyone encouraged one another to keep going – A truly memorable day”.
TIS are currently working for British Gypsum, installing a Fire Detection System at their Loughborough site.

It also gave us a great opportunity to meet additional members of the team & help build on our working relationship.”
Mark also went on to say “The overall organisation of the event and support facilities is second to none which added to the overall enjoyment of the day, we’re already looking forward to next year!
