Meet the Riders

Steve Watts - London to Paris


Steve Watts is Managing Director of the SEC Group. Steve occasionally cycles to the office but otherwise isn't an athlete. The London to Paris is not only a great way to raise money for Transaid, but a personal challenge too...

Gary Kirk - London to Paris


Gary Kirk is Project Sales Director for SEC Storage. Gary is a keen runner, regularly completing 10km+ runs and has previously run a half marathon. Donning a helmet and lycra will be a new experience, for all!

Dean Kahl - London to Paris


Dean Kahl is Marketing Manager of the SEC Group. Although a keen bike rider, it's a mountain bike! Hanging up the body armour and full face helmet in exchange for lycra means he's been disowned by his mates!

Sponsor and Support  Us!

Our jersey may be full, but you can still sponsor us!


We were offering the opportunity to sponsor our London to Paris Cycle Challenge jersey. However, due to jersey production lead times and the ovewhelming response we received, the jersey is now full and off to the printers!


However if you're still interested in sponsoring us, we can offer you a range of promotional options. And by being a corporate sponsor, you can pay Transaid directly meaning they get 100% of the donation and it goes towards our fundraising tally!
