Tom Pidcock (INEOS Grenadiers) started planting trees in the winter of 2019-2020 to offset the CO2 emissions associated with professional cycling. He used to auction old sweaters. Pidcock still does, but does listen to his coach, who told him not to plant the trees himself. He therefore calls out for helping hands to plant a new series of 500 trees.

In the winter of 2019-2020, Tom Pidcock started planting 250 trees at Gravesend cycling park, east of London. The British rider wanted to roll up his sleeves for this, but was banned from his coach, who thought that Pidcock should concentrate on training and resting.

And so the trees were planted by his mother and girlfriend, with the help of volunteers.

Pidcock is now again calling for helping hands for a new tree planting campaign. On Sunday January 16, his girlfriend and mother will again plant 500 trees in the park in Gravesend.
