Vätternrundan 2015

The world’s largest recreational bike ride, the Vätternrundan, is a truly challenging experience. 
The 300 km circuit of Lake Vättern tests all the participants to the furthest extremes of their physical and mental capabilities. The race takes place in June each year and starts and ends in the town of Motala. This year marked the 50th anniversary of this prestigious event.

Last month, as in previous years, three madcap cyclists from IPS Flow Systems joined another twenty or so from our parent group Indutrade AB.



Pictured above from left to right are, Paul Johnson our new Internal Sales Engineer, Caroline Riley, our Accounts Administrator, and Andrew Lamb our National Projects Manager.

Starting out at 10.00pm on a beautiful Friday evening, they cycled for almost 12 hours and including some much needed pit stops and refuelling breaks, finished the course at just after 1.00pm on Saturday afternoon making a total completion time of around 15 hours - a fantastic achievement!


Apologies in advance for the quality of the photo below but you get the gist....


  
Anyhow, we're pleased to report everyone finished the course safe and sound and despite some mutterings of "Never Again!" we know the training will be starting soon for next years' event.  Onwards and upwards....
