A team from RSHP will again be donning their Lycra and joining 77 other riders in cycling to Cannes in time for the MIPIM property industry convention. Kevin Gray, whose seventh ride this will be, will be joined by architects John Dent and Misha Smith.The ride sets off on 7 March from Greenwich Park covering 1500km and arriving in Cannes on 12 March for the grand opening of MIPIM.
Richard Rogers is Patron of Cycle 2 Cannes charity and the ride aims to raise over £200,000 for charity. Two-thirds of the money raised in 2013 will go towards the work of Coram, with Article 25, Tom's Trust, The MSA Trust and the Emthonjeni Trust receiving smaller grants. Coram is the UK’s first children’s charity and works with some of the most vulnerable children in our communities to help give them a better future.
