The Race

One of our company directors (Nick Powell) has been in training for the past few months to take part in a bike race for charity. The event that he’ll be taking part in is the Vätternrundan in Sweden on the 17th and 18th of June. This is a 300km race that goes around Lake Vättern, although I think that completing it will be enough of a challenge without thinking about ‘racing’ anyone! Nick completed this event last year so one of his goals will be to beat his previous time (which was something along the lines of 12 hours!) and raising as much money for charity as possible.

Training and preparation

We will be sponsoring and supporting Nick in his race and throughout his training. We have even had some lock stock biking gear designed by our in house designer especially for the event! The design (pictured below) won design of the day by the manufactures and will be used for many future events. We are even hoping in future to sponsor some local cyclists, supporting the cyclists with equipment, entry fees and charity donations. If you are a cyclist in lock stocks local area with upcoming events we’d be pleased to hear about it. You can e-mail us at

Nick has been training hard for that past 6 months or so, riding up and down the Vale of Clwyd (our local area) and occasionally combining it with work by riding from Denbigh to some of our sites in Llandudno or Oswestry. While training for the big event over in Sweden Nick has taken part in a more local event. The event was a 100m race called Marches Sportive in Shropshire. The race started in Ludlow and went through the Welsh countryside passing towns and villages such as Montgomery, Tregynon and Clun before heading back to finish at Ludlow. He managed to complete the race in about 8 hours.


The charity that Nick will be raising money for is St Kentigerns. This is a local charity that we at Lock Stock have huge support for. It is particularly close to the directors Nick and Shon as they have experienced some hard times due to cancer. Their mother Jean Powell survived a battle with cancer but unfortunately their brother Simon Powell didn’t. After a long 10 year battle with cancer he died at the age of 57. They both appreciate the good work being done at ST Kentigerns. You can sponsor Nick at, any sponsors would be greatly appreciated.
