The Tour de East Japan Kashima to Hachinohe 800km ride is a charity experience to commemorate and acknowledge the life-changing effects of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. Taylors team member Michael Olthof (Senior Design Engineer) has elected to take part in the ride this year as an opportunity to immerse himself in the culture, and Taylors are proud to be supporting him on this memorable journey.
