About the event:

Following the huge success of 2016’s London to Monaco cycle ride, founded and sponsored by Winch Design, Blue has launched London to Monaco 2017. The event will run from Sunday 17 – Tuesday 26 September.

This year we have partnered with Rapha Travel, a leading, global cycling company who are organising the ride. 

Cyclists will depart from London, where they will experience a celebrity send off and arrive at the Prince’s Palace in Monaco to receive a royal greeting from Prince Albert himself, the day before the start of the Monaco Yacht Show.

This challenging but rewarding event will see cyclists cover over 1400 km and 19,000 metres of elevation while raising vital funds for Blue’s work.

‘Oceans are more than ever at the heart of our common future. The London to Monaco Cycle Ride is a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness on the necessity to protect our fragile oceans.’  HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco

 

The cause:

Last year, we raised over £250,000 for ocean conservation. Funds raised went towards two of Blue’s projects: Aeolian Islands and Ascension Island in the Aeolians, this money enabled us to initiate the creation of a marine protected area in the beautiful but threatened waters. In Ascension, we funded a huge range of conservation, education and eco-tourist development for the island.

This year we hope to raise even more funds for even more projects including the Solent Oyster Restoration Project, marine plastic removal as well as further work in Ascension and the Aeolians.

 

‘The perfect way of contributing to a great cause. With an amazing group of people we cycled through a magnificent landscape. Will definitely sign up again next year.’  Bob Rebel, 2016 cyclist
