Pedal to the Metal for Team Kubota

A team of volunteers from tractor, groundcare and construction machinery specialists Kubota UK are raising the bar in a bid to pick up the coveted Mix96 Tour de Vale trophy, as they prepare to cycle their way to victory in the charity event held on Sunday 26 June.

Taking on the challenge for the third year in a row, the team will cycle 25km, 60km, and 100km courses, joining 2,000 riders pedaling their way across Buckinghamshire in the hope to raise money for a good cause and take home the trophy. The trophy will be awarded to the team that raises the most for the benefit of Wheel Power, a national charity dedicated to providing opportunities for disabled people to help them live healthy active lifestyles.

Over the past two years Team Kubota has raised £2,300 for Wheel Power and this year the team aim to beat their first year’s fundraising total of £1,500. The money raised will help Wheel Power match the 2015 total of £62,000.

Dave Roberts, Managing Director of Kubota UK, said: “It’s fantastic to be taking part in this year’s Mix96 Tour De Vale, and I am extremely proud of our team for volunteering their time for such a fantastic cause.

“Kubota dealers, local businesses and our peers in the tractor, groundcare and construction industries were all very generous with donations last year and we hope that they will continue to support us again this year to help raise as much as we can for Wheel Power.”
