The Legal & General Cycle to MIPIM is our original endurance charity bike ride, with cyclists covering 1,400km from London to the international retail estate show, MIPIM, in Cannes.
The Legal & General Cycle to MIPIM charity challenge is an epic 1,452km cycling endurance event for the property industry that takes place annually in March. Over six days, 100 professionals from the property industry ride in a relay format, completing at least two stages every day, from London to Cannes. Fundraising for our charity partners, the event has helped make the overall total raised by Club Peloton to more than £2 million.
The ride itself is extremely challenging, with early starts, long days and late finishes. Riders have the opportunity to network with industry associates, while experiencing what it’s like to be a pro cyclist, with a full support crew comprising mechanical support, medics, physiotherapists, motorcycle outriders and lead car. The cyclists have to learn to work together as a group as tired bodies are challenged by early morning starts, variable weather conditions and challenging climbs. This all helps to contribute to the bonds that form between riders over the six days, making the celebrations in Cannes all the more special.
The annual Cycle to MIPIM, in its 11th edition in 2016, now sees over 120 cyclists ride from London to Cannes, covering
