My Story – Nick Mellor

Why have you signed up to join the event?

After such a challenging year, this is a great way to reconnect, support the Lift Industry Charity, and focus on getting fit.

How is your training going so far?

I ride my mountain bike in the North Yorkshire Moors most weekends, but I fell badly and hurt my knee. So I need to get some rides in and a few longer rides on my gravel bike.

Why should others join in?

It’s a challenge that most people can do with training, it’s much easier doing a long ride with friends and colleagues, and it will be fun!

Why is the work of the Lift Industry Charity so important?

The Charity is the industry coming together to support industry colleagues and their families at times of great need. Sadly, the industry has lost colleagues from accidents in recent years and from the pandemic.

We should be proud of how the industry responded to the pandemic, especially engineers going to site to do essential work.
