After the impressive results of last year’s cycle challenge, we realise some people are suckers for punishment!
For the second year, New London Architecture Chairman, Peter Murray is joining forces with a small group of other keen riders, architect Chris Dyson, Sadie Morgan, HS2 Design Panel Chair, Alex Naraian, President Elect of CIAT, Nigel Ostime of Hawkins Brown and Chair of the RIBA's Client Liaison Group, Rob Price and Martin Walsh from Perkins and Will and Sam Baxter from Tsunami Axis, and cycle 125.7 miles from London to Birmingham to raise money for Construction Youth Trust.
Their target for 2017 is to raise £10,000 and help Construction Youth Trust introduce the benefits of the construction industry to even more young people.
“We’ll do the ride at a steady pace riding 90 miles on Monday October 9 and the rest on Tuesday morning, following an early start so that we are at Birmingham’s NEC in time for the opening ceremony of UK Construction Week. We will also be promoting the work of the Construction Industry Cycling Commission and the work it is doing to ensure a road safety culture is embedded across the industry.”
Peter is calling for other construction professionals to join him again and arrive by bike at the opening of UK Construction Week 2017 on the morning of Tuesday 10th October.
