The team from BigChange finished the two-day, 170 mile ride in support of Transaid
Two senior members of BigChange’s leadership team completed the coast-to-coast ‘Way of the Roses’ cycling route – raising more than £3,200 for the international development charity Transaid along the way.
Chief Operating Officer Jo Godsmark and Commercial Sales Director John Mills rode the 170 mile route last weekend. The journey took the team through four counties, starting in Morecambe, Lancashire and ending in Bridlington, Yorkshire. While much of the country enjoyed sunshine they contended with rain, wind and 3000m of hills over the two days.
This challenge was all in the name of Transaid, a long-term charity partner of BigChange. A donation goal of £3,000 was exceeded as the riders completed the race and the total amount raised now stands at £3,233.
There’s still time to support our team’s achievement, and Transaid’s fantastic work improving road safety and access to healthcare through transportation solutions in developing nations, at the team’s Just Giving page.
All the money raised will help to fund initiatives that revolutionise sustainable and safe transport across the world. We’d like to thank the racers that made it possible and our BigChange followers for their support and donations to this worthwhile cause.

Most recently, BigChange worked with Transaid to provide a HGV driver training simulator for the Industrial Training Centre in Lusaka, Zambia. The money raised from our brilliant cyclists will go towards further initiatives that revolutionise sustainable and safe transport across the world..
During the two-day event, the BigChange team will pass through the historic towns of Settle and Harrogate along with stretches of the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland. You can stay up to date with the team on the BigChange socials, as they share photos and progress.
We wish the team the best of luck and hope to see your support as they gear up for this fantastic challenge.
BigChange, the revolutionary mobile workforce management platform, is celebrating the delivery of an HGV driver training simulator at the Industrial Training Centre (ITC) in Lusaka that will help meet growing demand for professional driver training in Zambia.
BigChange is one of four organisations from the transport and logistics sector to have supported Transaid’s efforts to provide a professional simulator in Zambia, enabling new HGV drivers to spend additional hours behind the wheel in the safety of the classroom. It has worked alongside Clipper Logistics, Malcolm Group and XPO to help supply the simulator, supporting the initiative with donations of cash and expertise.
“BigChange is passionate about safety and sustainability. We are delighted to support Transaid and partners from across the transport and logistics sector in this incredibly worthwhile and potentially life saving endeavour. ”
Martin Port, BigChange Founder & CEO
“We are hugely grateful to BigChange, Clipper Logistics, Malcolm Group and XPO for securing the simulator and working with the talented team at ITC to ensure it was installed in Lusaka. It’s an amazing resource; and we’re confident it will help drive standards of training at ITC even higher, alongside the existing classroom, workshop and practical on-road teaching.”
