It’s not easy to convince people that men wearing lycra is a good look. But when you’ve got the HIPPO and FILLTITE logos on your gear, it definitely helps! Last weekend Tembé sales director Kevin Heath joined forces with Alsford Timber to form the Alsford Peddlers cycle team.

Over 3 days they successfully covered 510 gruelling miles across France. Day 3 proved to be the most challenging with a 4,618 metre climb which included a section of the 2013 Tour de France route where Chris Froome sealed his first victory.

Once finally at the finish line they were able to take in the views, across Lake Annecy, of Mont Blanc, the highest peak in Europe. This year the team are supporting The British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research and Shooting Star Chase charities.
