Sponsored news: Yusen Logistics (UK) embarks on an epic cycling challenge for charity

06 September 2022/Categories: Logistics & Supply Chain, Operations Management

David Goldsborough saddles up for Tour De Yusen Logistics this autumn!

On the 12th September Yusen Logistics David Goldsborough, Managing Director sets off on an epic cycling challenge across the YLUK network.  David’s challenge covers 767 miles (climbing 35,662m elevation) along 10 stages starting in Sunderland and stopping at the majority of YLUK’s sites before finishing in Northampton as he fundraises to support local charities nominated by YLUK colleagues. 

David Goldsborough, Managing Director said, “We wanted to do something bigger than we’ve ever done before and make a real difference. The entire YLUK team are supporting local and key National charities.

“I can ride a bike” I thought! How hard can it be to ride between each of our sites and, fundraise along the way? Well…now it’s becoming real, I can see its going to be a tough challenge, but nothing compared to the challenges faced by the people supported by these charities.  So please, support our fundraising efforts and the charities this will benefit”!

Each cycle stage comprises traffic-free sections, running primarily on cycle lanes and quiet roads, interspersed with sections of traffic-free paths, making this a challenge that is accessible to experienced riders and David will be joined by different colleagues on each leg!

YLUK are extremely grateful to their customers and suppliers that generously donated a bike for the challenge and also the free loan of support vehicles to support riders throughout each stage.
