SMT GBs Birmingham Depot embark on Le Tour De Depots cycle challenge

The team at SMT GB’s Birmingham Depot are helping to raise money for Cancer Research UK by holding a charity bike ride event. The challenge is to complete a virtual ‘Depot Tour’ of 1269 miles within 29 days on a turbo trainer.


The bike has kindly been donated by SMT GB customer Collins Earthworks and after the event the bike will be raffled off to those within the business who have taken part in the challenge.

Paul Kersley, Customer Support Director at SMT GB and Kyle Clements, Plant Manager at Collins Earthworks kicked off the challenge on 20 November along with Mark Blakemore, Depot Manager at Birmingham.

Mark says; “I wanted to do something this year to raise money for a charity that is close to many people’s hearts here at the depot and our aim is to bike to every single SMT GB depot by 22 December. As the bike is in the office anyone can take part in the challenge and we’re encouraging employees of all abilities to take part whether it’s just 10 minutes in a lunch break or a longer stretch on the bike.”

We will be sharing regular updates on the progress made by the team on the SMT GB Facebook and Twitter pages so stay tuned to find out how they get on.
