Rising to the Deloitte Ride Across Britain (DRAB) Challenge

Company News, EMEA
Joe Rushworth, a Technical Engineer with integrated fire and security business, Evolution, has cycled 980 miles (1,577 Km) to raise more than £2,500 for Cancer Research UK.


As a participant in the Deloitte Ride Across Britain (DRAB) challenge, he joins thousands of cyclists who have taken part in the gruelling journey from Land’s End to John O’Groats since 2009. The cycle route crosses 23 counties in England, Wales and Scotland.


Joe decided to enter the challenge last year and was in no doubt that he wanted to do it in support of Cancer Research UK: “Like many others, sadly I have friends and family who have been affected by and experienced cancer. Riding in support of this great cause was all the motivation I needed for the 3,000 practice miles and the DRAB itself.


“The event was the most challenging yet enjoyable experience of my life. The first four days were fairly straightforward and I felt good, but then things got a whole lot more difficult as I injured my knee on day five. The lowest point came on the penultimate day when my knee had become so swollen that I was unable to extend my leg. However, the amazing event physios helped get me back on the bike and I was able to complete the final 119 mile stage in good time.”


Richard Lambert, Director at Evolution, says: “Joe should be incredibly proud of what he has achieved, demonstrating true determination and resilience while also raising money for a great cause. Joe joined the business 11 years ago and has proven himself to be a dependable and key member of the team.”


This years’ event took place from the 8th to 16th September. Anyone wanting to donate to the event should visit the Virgin Money giving page,
