Tibbetts tandem tourers tackle 50 mile trek

Strong legs and a wise investment of a couple of double-sprung gel saddles has seen Phil Havercroft and Jan Hooper over the finish line in a very impressive tandem cycle fundraiser in sweltering conditions.

Sales Director Phil, Jan and the wonderful team at the Tibbetts Group had initially planned an epic 27 mile fundraising walk from Banbury to Oxford, but due to COVID-19 the event had to be cancelled.

“Jan and I decided to almost double the mileage by cycling our tandem 50 miles instead,” explained Phil. “We smashed the challenge by completing 54.68 miles.”

That’s about 54.67 more miles than any of us here could manage, and we’re SO grateful to Phil, Jan and the whole Tibbetts team - the Tibbetts Trekkers - for planning to venture and fundraise in different ways, including an 874 mile LEJOG.

The Trekkers consist of 28 members of the Tibbetts team spread across TGL, BFC and Powell Gee, and each member has pledged their own personal challenge to help meet the impressive 874 mile LEJOG target. They're aiming to raise £5000 to help us put the joy back into the lives of people living with disabilities. Every penny raised is especially precious and appreciated in these current times, and we can’t thank them all enough. Go team Tibbetts!

You can support Phil and Jan and donate to the fantastic Tibbetts Trekkers though their respective fundraising pages.
