TIP’s FBB&G take on the Balearics for this year’s charity bike ride


Following the cancellation of last year’s annual TIP charity bike ride due to the pandemic, the ‘Fat Bottomed Boys and Girls’ (FBB&G) from TIP Trailer Services are getting back in the saddle at the end of this month taking on their 8th annual charity cycle challenge. This year, the intrepid TIP team of riders are completing a testing three day event around the Balearic Island of Majorca.

Taking place from September 29 to October 1 and comprising a broad mix of age, experience and ability drawn from TIP employees, loyal customers and supporting partners from the UK and Irish transport industries, the TIP event will cover a route of over 400 kms circumnavigating the island, with a mix of spectacular but punishing climbs that will prove to be a test for many of the participants.

“Over the past seven years, TIP’s FBB&G have raised more than £300,000 for deserving charities by participating in our annual challenge for both experienced and novice cyclists, and this year we are looking to raise a further £60,000 for the deserving charities,” said Mike Furnival, managing director UK&I, TIP Trailer Services.

This year, the donations will be split between the Donna Louise Children’s Hospital in Stoke-on-Trent, a long term beneficiary charity closely associated with TIP, and the Alzheimer’s Society.

Mike Furnival continues, “Every year, we’ve had fantastic support from all corners of the transport industry in supplying both team members and sponsorship, so this year once again we genuinely welcome any sponsorship for this event as both charities rely heavily on attracting private sponsorship for the successful running of their operations.”
