Paul Brown, Commercial Director for Refuse Vehicle Solutions Ltd (RVS) has signed up to join over 40 cyclists from the waste management sector to cycle over 200 miles from Kent to Ghent and raise money for various charities.
The riders will set off from the Southern Municipal Exhibition, West Malling, Kent on Thursday 12 May and will arrive in Ghent on Saturday 14 May. The event follows on from the success of the 2015 ‘Tower to Tower’ charity cycle ride from the Tower of London to the Eiffel Tower in Paris, which featured many senior figures from the waste management sector.
Paul, who is raising money for the Alzheimer’s Society said: “I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve known most of the other riders for many years so it will be lots of fun as well as physically gruelling at times.”
There are 9 support teams this year helping to raise money and assisting the riders during the ride. Both the support teams and the riders are responsible for their own expenses and all donations will go straight to the Charities.
Epic Media, Vehicle Weighing Solutions (VWS), Dennis Eagle and Riney are sponsoring the ‘tour shirts’. CMS Supatrak, Scarab Sweepers, Simply Waste, VWS and Collett Transport Services (CTS) are also providing support.
Last year’s event raised over £25k overall and this year’s target is £20k. Donations are very welcome can be made on Paul’s JustGiving page at https://www.justgiving.com/Paul-Brown78/
