Our Operations Director, Roger Dent took part in the Tour of North Lincolnshire Sportive this month organised by Curly's Athletes and North Lincolnshire Council, he raised a fantastic £300 for Macmillan Cancer Support. "Having done the 25 mile event the year before, I knew what to expect but the approach for a 60+ mile event is a lot different and I had to make sure I paced the event correctly," commented Roger.
We asked Roger about his training leading up to the event, he said "I structured my training around regular sessions on the bike (2-3 times a week) and mixed it up between short and long runs and intense short sprints."
He really enjoyed the event and felt it was well organised with lots of like-minded people taking part. When asked if he would do the sportive again, he responded very positively with "definitely yes!" He is also looking for more staff to join the HITEK Cycling Club!
