News: SteelPhalt cyclists fighting cancer

By

A trio of friends from Rotherham road surface specialists, SteelPhalt, have taken part in a special Tour de France cycle challenge to raise money for a cancer charity.

Paul Monson, Dan Rogers and Lee Burgdol were among the competitors taking part in a 122 mile Grand Depart trek from Leeds to Harrogate in support of top charity Cyclists Fighting Cancer, the organisation that enables children and young people living with cancer to regain their physical fitness, strength and confidence by giving them new bikes, adapted trikes, tandems, other equipment and support.

And as SteelPhalt is currently celebrating its 50th anniversary, the company decided to give the friends a £1,000 boost to their bike riding efforts.

Paul Monson, weigh bridge operator at Steelphalt, said: "It was a tough challenge. The route took us through some spectacular scenery but it was also a very challenging course and it took us around nine hours to complete.

"It's great to know that SteelPhalt have decided to give us a £1,000 boost too because this is a great charity and it makes all our effort seem that much more worthwhile."

Based at Templeborough, SteelPhalt has been developing and manufacturing high performance asphalt products for the UK road making industry since 1964, sourcing slag cost-effectively from the surrounding steel industry and providing a sustainable way of making asphalt, with at least 95 per cent of the product the result of the recycling process.
