‘100 4 100’ charity ride marks Piller’s 100 years in Osterode.
Piller will be marking the centenary of their operation in Osterode, near Hannover, Germany with a 100km charity bike ride to raise 100 thousand euros for The Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent charities.
Piller’s Managing Directors from around the globe will cycle 100km around the rugged Harz Mountains region of Northern Germany. This special ride, dubbed ‘100 4 100’ will take place on Wednesday 12th June.
Piller’s Global Managing Director, and participant, Andrew Dyke said: “Ten years after it was founded, Piller moved its headquarters to Osterode in 1919 and it is still there to this day. We are grateful to the event sponsors helping us mark this very special charity bike ride and would also like to extend our thanks and appreciation to all those who have donated so far. We are very much looking forward to the event and the challenge!”
