Congratulations to Zeton’s Ride for the Roses Team!
October 1, 2015
On September 6th, 2015 the 18th edition of the Ride for the Roses was held in the Netherlands. A popular 25, 50 or 100 km event in the Dutch cycling calendar, Ride for the Roses is a bike ride in support of the fight against cancer.
It is a well-known event for Zeton B.V. employees and their families as well. Many staff ride recreationally, and have completed the Ride for the Roses before. This time a group of experienced and inexperienced Ride for the Roses cyclists joined the Zeton team.
To make it even more challenging, they started their ride a day early. Together with people living in the eastern part of Holland, they cycled the “Pre-Ride”. This involved cycling to the start of the Ride for the Roses event at the Flora Holland Flower Auction in Aalsmeer, a distance of 200 kilometers from Enschede.
On the day of the ride itself, they all cycled the longer 100 kilometers route through the beautiful landscape of the Netherlands. The finish was a special moment, with each participant receiving a rose, symbolizing “a tomorrow for everyone”. In a sporty, healthy and enjoyable way, 9,000 cyclists took a stand against cancer and raised EUR 854,000 for the KWF cancer foundation. Congratulations to all Zeton-staff participants!
