100 MILES, 100 TEAMS, £100,000 FOR CHARITY.
IS YOUR BUSINESS UP FOR THE CHALLENGE?
“We signed up to be Principal Sponsor for the Birmingham Midlands Velo 2019. Being part of such a well organised and successful event within the Midlands region was such an honour. Our clients and colleagues enjoyed the training ride with Martin Johnson at the end of March, which spurred our team on to start their training schedules. On the day of the ride, the route was excellently planned, with plenty of drinks stations along the way and easy to follow. The varied ride through spectacular countryside and parts of the Midlands towns and cities gave us the opportunity to take in all of the picturesque scenery. It was greatly appreciated by all riders that we were supported by the bystanders and crowds along the route, which really was helped by the tremendous weather we had on that day.”

WHAT HAVE WE BEEN UP TO?
Training Ride With Martin Johnson CBE (March 30, 2019)
Hosted by our friends at Purity Brewing, our Business 100 riders enjoyed a morning in the saddle with England Rugby legend Martin Johnson CBE – followed by some well-earned food and drink. The sun was shining, and the beer was flowing!
“As a creative communications group we have very high standards regarding event organisation, and our entry in the CBRE Business 100 was met with professionalism, impeccable attention to detail and a fantastic experience. The opportunity to ride with fellow cyclists who are as passionate about bikes and Lycra as they are about their businesses drew resounding parallels with our team who forged great relationships. From the pre-event communication, training ride, mix and mingle events and ultimately the hospitality on the day, even our seasoned riders’ had their expectations blown away. It was definitely an amazing experience, facilitated by an incredible team, and we’ll definitely be looking to repeat it next year.”

“The Business 100 offered a great opportunity for a number of colleagues from across St. James’s Place to not only take part in a fantastic event but also raise a significant amount for charity. The whole event was superbly organised and orchestrated and everyone in our team particularly commented on the exhilaration of riding on closed roads. They will be signing up for the next one”
