Industry leader challenge

Epic Thames Waterbike Ride 2019

The Industry Leader Challenge (ILC) baton for 2019 has been passed on to three well-known senior industry leaders: Jon Wakefield, Volvo Car UK’s Managing Director; Tim Tozer, CEO of Allianz Partners UK & Ireland and Darren Guiver, Managing Director of Group 1 Automotive. These three leaders will now take on the 2019 challenge called the Epic Thames Waterbike Ride to raise much-needed funds for Ben.

The trio will be cycling a total of 166 miles on the River Thames from source to sea on self-propelled water bikes. Forget walking on water – these three will be cycling on water, alongside boats, through locks and out to sea, which is no mean feat! This epic challenge will be an incredible test of physical and mental endurance and stamina from start to finish.
