DCO Systems to support heart bypass recipient's quest to cycle the length of Britain

Published:  17 August, 2021

DCO Systems says it is proud to sponsor Dean Jacobs in his quest to cycle the length of Britain for British Heart Foundation (BHF).

In September 2019, on the 3rd anniversary of his heart bypass operation, Dean made a decision to cycle from Land's End to John O'Groats in August 2020 and raise money and awareness for BHF. However, the event was delayed due to Covid-19. In turn, Dean utilised the additional year of training and is now set to depart from Land’s End on 24th August. Accompanying the nearly 1000-mile journey, DCO Systems has retrofitted a customised sensor to Dean's bicycle and will monitor his location, speed, environment and movement.

To follow Dean’s journey from Land’s End to John O’Groats, go to https://dcosystems.co.uk/lejog. DCO will be posting regular updates and feature a live dashboard monitoring the components of his ride. You can also donate to Dean’s campaign
