BEC would like to congratulate our Toolroom Manager Mike Tharme on completing Europe’s biggest charity mountain bike event on Saturday 4th September! In order to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation Mike and two friends cycled a mammoth 100km off-road from London to Brighton.

Over the course of six hours, Mike tackled a variety of terrains and several large hills- one of which measured in at 700ft tall! After completing the race, he managed to make it into the toolroom on Monday morning but was a little saddle-sore to say the least.

Through sponsorship from family, friends and colleagues Mike has so far raised over £600 for the British Heart Foundation- a fantastic charity that is close to BEC’s heart after our founder Geoff’s heart attack last year. If you would like to help Mike raise funds for BHF and the great work they do to save lives every year, please visit Mike’s JustGiving page here:

Congrats Mike!
