Corecom Consulting Embark on Tour De Yorkshire Challenge
Fourteen members of the Corecom Consulting team will be embarking on the challenge of cycling the distance of the Tour De Yorkshire today; 490km over four days.
The Tour De Yorkshire has become a firm annual fixture in the world cycling calendar bringing elite pro racing to the roads of the UK. It’s the biggest event in the 2017 Yorkshire calendar. It’s now in its third year and the route will go through new areas which haven’t been covered before including new parts of Nidderdale, Pocklington, Driffield and Goathland.
On Tuesday 25 April the ‘Corecom Cyclists’ will commence their journey, beginning the first day of their challenge with a virtual pedal from Bridlington to Scarborough (173km). The team will be paired up and complete the distance on two exercise bikes provided by Pure Gym, Leeds City Centre North, in the Boardroom at Corecom Consulting’s Head Office in Leeds.
On Wednesday 26 April the team will cycle the planned Tour De Yorkshire distance from Tadcaster to Harrogate, amounting to 122.5km.
The final pedal from Bradford to Fox Valley-Sheffield is the longest and hardest at a distance of 194.5km. The Corecom Cyclists will split this over two days (Thursday 27 and Friday 28 April) and watch the departure (Stage 1) take place whilst completing their final kilometres. Jonathan Sanderson, Managing Director at Corecom Consulting said:
“The team and I are really excited for the challenge. We will be using the time wisely, pairing people together from different departments and using it as an opportunity to generate new business ideas. Our usual sit down meetings will be held on the bikes mid-challenge!
“Special thanks goes to Pure Gym, Leeds City Centre North, for kindly sponsoring the event.”
The Corecom team plans to complete their Tour De Yorkshire challenge on the launch day of the event itself. They will watch live coverage of the riders setting off from the coastal town of Bridlington. Click here to view details of the Tour De Yorkshire route, including a map and film.
