Following several months of training and preparation the pedElle ladies are looking forward to their cycle ride from Bilbao to Madrid, which will be taking place next week between the 10th and 14th June.
This year two members of the Tibbalds team will be taking part – Jennifer Ross, Director and Sarah Jenkinson, Architect and Designer.
PedElle is now one of three main rides that the Cycle To charity runs. The others being Cycle to MIPIM and Cycle to MAPIC. On an annual basis these charity rides support around 180 riders from across the property industry to take part in a number of cycle events. Cycle To’s purpose is to allow people in industry to network, get fit and raise a lot of money for charities, including Coram.
The PedElle was set up to specifically encourage women in the industry to get on their bikes. The MIPIM and MAPIC rides have traditionally been male dominated events and three years ago Jennifer Ross from Tibbalds decided that it was time that more women should be encouraged to take part in the events. The first ride went from London to Paris, the second from Milan to Venice. This years ride will take 27 riders from Bilbao to Madrid, will take three days and will cover over 300 miles.
The ride is raising money for a number of charities. The main beneficiary is Coram. Donations can be made via our
Virgin Money sponsorship page.
