Workplace Law cycling the distance of the UK leg of the Tour de France

To celebrate the Tour de France passing through Cambridge, the staff at Workplace Law have vowed to cycle 549 miles in seven days to raise money for our chosen charity for 2014, Global Generation.

The UK leg of this year’s Tour de France commences on Saturday 5 July and will see over 150 professional athletes cycling 549 miles over three days before the Tour crosses the Channel into France. 

On Monday 7 July, the Tour will pass through Cambridge and to mark the occasion we've decided to organise our very own cycling extravaganza.

We are aiming to raise over £3,000 by cycling 549 miles in our “Le Ride Week”, which will take place between 5 and 12 July. Each member of staff is pledging to cycle a number of miles, ranging from one to 100 during the week, and can complete their miles while commuting to work, in their own time, or on one of the exercise bikes that will be situated in our Cambridge office.

To close the week in style, a team of Workplace Law cyclists will be riding to Global Generation in London from our head office in Cambridge.

We would be extremely grateful for any donations as we seek to reach our fundraising target for Global Generation.

Global Generation is a charity dedicated to giving young people opportunities to play a part in creating a sustainable future, and was selected by Workplace Law as its chosen charity for 2014. Global Generation offers opportunities for businesses and people of all ages to explore sustainability in a hands-on way, build community and create a new vision for the future. 

Commenting on our fundraising efforts, Jane Riddiford, Executive Director at Global Generation said:

“It is great to be collaborating with a company that is closely aligned with values that are important to Global Generation. The charitable donation will make a significant difference to our work over the coming year and particularly to the lives of 50 young people who will go on a life changing leadership journey. In addition, the spirit in which the money is being raised is inspiring in terms of tangibly demonstrating how each one of us can make a difference.”
