Join the Workplace Law London to Cambridge cycle team

Workplace Law has entered a team in this years’ London to Cambridge bike ride which takes place on Sunday 25 July, and we’re inviting you to join us!


We will be raising money for two great charities: Breakthrough Breast Cancer and Exhall Grange Specialist School in Coventry.


The London to Cambridge bike ride is one of the most popular cycling events in the UK, attracting more than 4,000 entrants each year. Starting from Pickett's Lock in north London, the route winds through beautiful countryside to the finish at Midsummer Common in the heart of Cambridge. The 57 mile route is described by organisers as “easy going and suitable for riders of average levels and abilities.” We will be cycling as a team and so the pace will be fairly gentle.


The event is organised by Bike Events, who provide marshals, mechanical back up, and medical facilities throughout the route. Pit stops are staged at intervals, and we will be planning to take it easy and have a few drinks and refreshments during the ride.


The official charity for the event is Breakthrough Breast Cancer.


We would also like to share any money raised by Workplace Law equally with our own charity of choice: Exhall Grange Specialist School & Science College in Coventry.


Team entry costs £17 per person, which Workplace Law will pay on your behalf (so it’s free to enter!). We will be asking all riders to make an equivalent donation to charity if they are happy to, and of course there’s nothing to stop you raising ££££s from your own family and friends, 100% of which will go to Breakthrough Breast Cancer and Exhall Grange.


The invitation is open to everyone: Workplace Law staff, associates, friends and colleagues, our clients and suppliers.


Workplace Law will be providing t-shirts and will organise transport from Cambridge to London (for both riders and bikes) on the morning of the event. There’s a great ‘family day out’ feeling at the finish line, with music and refreshments on Midsummer Common in Cambridge. There’s plenty of space to park on the common.

Following the ride, from 2.30pm onwards, we will be hosting a family summer BBQ at the Burleigh Arms in Cambridge (just 2 mins from the finishing line). All riders, as well as their families, are welcome.


If you would like to join us for the ride or would like to find out more information then please email Gavin Bates at or if you know anyone who may like to take part then please forward the details to them.
