On Thursday 22 June, 700 of the property industry’s keenest cyclists descended upon Sandown Park Racecourse in Esher for CBRE’s annual charity bike ride.
The cause? Raising vital funds CBRE’s UK Charity partner, Shelter, that will help support the families affected by the Grenfell fire tragedy as well as other families facing homelessness across the UK.
Riders undertook a challenging 100km or 50km route through the winding roads of the Surrey Hills and battled the infamous Leith Hill and Box Hill climbs. 2017 was the biggest year yet for the property bike ride, and more than two thirds of the riders deciding to tackle the 100km distance is testament to the growing reputation of this event as a great cycling sportive.
Upon their triumphant return, riders were welcomed to the Hospitality Village with food, a much needed beer and a live band to celebrate, catch up on the day and rest some very weary legs!
We would like to thank all the cyclists who took part, and who helped to raise just under £50,000 for Shelter. This is the largest charitable donation The World’s Biggest Property Bike Ride has made in its four-year history.
