V12 group tricycle

Following on from our previous rider profile of Marcin. We now move on to our next two rider profiles, National Accounts Manager Kevin & Central Account Manager Joe are answering our questions today 

Kevin

How long have you been working at V12? For 3 years, supporting the national accounts and sales team.

Type of Bike / Spec - Trek Mountain Bike Elite 8.

Why did you sign up to the Tricycle event? I ran the event for V12 last year specifically in support of my daughter's charity so decided to organize a bigger event this year to raise further awareness of the charities we support at V12. Also to encourage more people to involve themselves in a sport that I very much enjoy

How long have you been cycling for? I have cycled for many years (40 years+) across all disciplines, Road, Track, Mountain bike, audax and cross country.

What is your biggest worry about taking part in this event? Making sure the weather holds out as riding through the Beacons with some inexperienced riders could become challenging.

A strange cycling experience? Last week I tangled with a sheep stuck in a cattle grid in a remote part of Wales which ended up in a three mile walk and snapped front wheel.

What age did you stop using stabilizers on your bike? I never used stabilizers , I don't think they were invented when I started riding a bike!

Joe

How long  have you been working at V12? 3 years as an account manager focusing on the acquisition of new retailers.

Type of Bike / Spec - Unsure, but it costs more to service than it did to buy !

Why did you sign up to the Tricycle event? My area and football club has unfortunately seen multi suicides in the last couple of years. So the survivors of bereavement by suicide charity is good cause to raise money for.

How long have you been cycling for? Since a young child but never to this level and never this amount of Lycra.

What is your biggest worry about taking part in this event? My bottom and listening to Kevin's choice of music in the car.

What age did you stop using stabilizers on your bike? They're still firmly attached.

If you'd like to help support our team on their cycle please donate via our fundraising page.

A big thank you from all of us at V12 in advance!
