Mapei Supports Macmillan At The Dragon Ride L’Etape In Wales

On Saturday 11th June Mapei UK and 123floors took part in the annual L’Etape Wales Dragon Ride from Margam Park in aid of Macmillian Cancer Support raising over £125 whilst 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 a fantastic 7 hours. Climbing around 8000ft 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!!” For more information about Mapei’s fundraising for Macmillian and to donate, visit https://www.justgiving.com/teams/mapei
