Mechtronic gets its blood pumping for Heart Research UK

Last month a team of 11 cyclists, largely consisting of Mechtronic employees, embarked on a 74 mile bike ride across Yorkshire in aid of Heart Research UK.

The Great Yorkshire bike ride is an annual event attracting around 2,000 cyclists of all ages and abilities. The journey starts at Wetherby and finishes over 70 miles away at Filey.

The 11 strong team consisted of Mechtronic and Nicholl Oil employees. Sales and marketing manager, Andy Spencer, said: “We’re already keen cyclists so combining our enjoyment of the sport with the chance to raise money and a bit of friendly competition between the guys, seemed like a great way to continue our 10 year anniversary celebrations.”

The company is currently planning further events to celebrate its growing success, including another bike ride in September.
