Mapei supports Macmillan at Dragon Ride L’Etape in Wales
ON Saturday 11 June Mapei UK and 123floors took part in the annual L’Etape Wales Dragon Ride from Margam Park in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support raising money while racing the 95-mile ‘Medio Route’.
Battling a mix of 30mph gusts, torrential rain and sunshine, Martin Hallam from Mapei UK and Jason Brook from 123floors completed the course in seven hours. Climbing about 8,000ft and having an average speed of 13mph.
Martin commented: ‘The major climbs of the day were the Bwlch, Rhigos - the highest road climbs in wales, Glynneath and Cimla hill as well as the undulating Brecon Beacons and Neath Valley. Not to mention the Devils Staircase – I now know why they give it this name!’
Jason said: ‘It was a tough day in the saddle but we both really enjoyed it and looking for the next cycling challenge!’
