On 2 July 2015, four members of staff from Micrometric will take part in 100 mile cycle ride from Lincoln Castle to the coast at Chapel St Leonards and back. The C2C2C event (Castle to Coast to Castle) follows a route eastwards to the Lincolnshire coast and back again. Cycling is very popular in Lincolnshire, and although the county is generally quite flat, the route includes some hilly stretches which will challenge the stamina of the riders.
In 2013, Engineer Joe Ashworth from Micrometric took part individually in the C2C2C event and was first over the finish line. This year is the first time that Micrometric has entered a company team. Joe Ashworth is again competing for Micrometric and is joined by three other staff: Company Secretary Rosie de Smit, Operations Manager Chris Waters and Works Engineering Manager Nigel Thomas.
The event is taking part to raise money for three excellent local charities: Sophie’s story, St Barnabas Hospice and the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance. In addition, the C2C2C event is aimed at encouraging employees of local companies to get away from their desks and take to the countryside, which also improves health and fitness.
As well as the entrance fee which goes to the charities, Micrometric Ltd. is asking for donations to boost the amount raised for the nominated causes. If you would like to make a donation which will be split between the above charities, you can do so here:
