Old men doing what old men do

After Andrew Monkhouse of Carlisle-based Complete Engineering Services (a Ceratizit customer) spent 10 days in Cumberland Infirmary recovering from Covid-19 back in January, he, along with co-managing director Alan Walker and long standing motorcycling friend Denzil Addison decided it was time to put a long-held plan into action and raise money for the infirmary and Blood Bikes Cumbria.

The plan is to ride the entire UK coastline in three legs on a trio of 30 year-old Honda Super Cub 50cc motorcycles. With less than 5 hp, a top speed of 37 mph (flat out with a tail wind), the machines can achieve around 100 mpg from the 1.1 gallon fuel tank. The trio are covering their own fuel and accommodation costs, meaning any sponsorship raised from individuals and companies will go directly to the infirmary and Blood Bikes Cumbria. Ceratizit UK & Ireland sponsorship brings added incentive as it will donate £1 per mile on a daily basis to keep the total ticking over.
