With just a month to go until the London - Monaco Cycle Ride, we bring you five reasons to support the teams behind this fundraising event.
40 cyclists are taking part in the London to Monaco Cycle Ride, organised by Winch Design in conjunction with Blue Marine Foundation. Made up of cyclists from the superyacht and ocean conservation worlds, the riders will undertake a gruelling 10-day cycle from London to Monaco Yacht Show in a bid to raise £500,000 for the Blue Marine Foundation.
The first London - Monaco Cycle Ride takes 10 days and will see the teams undertake 10 stages, covering over 1,500km.
They will take in three countries, passing terrain that ranges from gentle rolling hills to the majestic Rhone Alps. The cyclists will face 16,000 metres of elevation, and put their wheels through 16.8 million revolutions.
A team of 17 from La Fuga is managing logistics and supporting the 40 riders as they make 10 stops on the road to Monaco Yacht Show. They will be taken care of by 17 highly trained support staff, including support vehicles, motorbike outriders, mechanics and masseurs.
