The Timico team tackle London to Brighton 2018!

London to Brighton is a flagship charity event ran by The British Heart Foundation, calling fundraisers to take on the challenge of a 54 mile bike ride from Clapham Common, London, all the way to the sunny and welcoming sights of Brighton Beach.

In a test of skill for a charitable cause, six Timico employees grabbed their cycling gear and took on the ride for the 2018 event on the 17th of June.

Glen Bint, 2nd Line Engineer, said about the most rewarding part of his day; “Taking on the Ditching Beacon. It’s a tough hill to crack and goes to around 800ft above sea level!”

The bike ride followed a route through Surrey and Sussex countryside, and was open to cyclists of all experience levels. Timico proudly sponsored the six person team to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. At it’s launch in 1976, the race only featured 36 riders, but since has grown to over 15,000 recorded cyclists a year.
