CBRE Gets In Gear For Second Cycle Series North

Property professionals from CBRE’s Northern offices in Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool are gearing up to take part in the second Cycle Series North to support disadvantaged young people across the UK. The event takes place on Thursday 27 June at the Broughton Hall Estate in Skipton.

The inaugural ride in 2018 saw more than 200 cyclists representing over 120 companies from across the property industry, saddle up from across the North and CBRE is hoping to attract more riders this year. There are two distances available – 50km and 100km – aimed at intermediate and advanced levels of ability and experience. Both routes take riders through the Yorkshire Dales with a few challenging hill climbs along the way.

CBRE signed a two-year partnership with Action for Children last year and the charity welcomed a cash injection of more than £11,500 from the 2018 North cycle event, which is vital in helping to build safe and loving homes for more than 700 children in care and to support foster parents.

John Ogden, MD CBRE Manchester said:

“Last year’s event was such great fun and a fantastic team builder for all staff taking part, as well as an excellent platform to build relationships with our clients and industry colleagues who also participated. We look forward to riding the routes this year and hope to raise even more money for our charity partner, which is such a worthy cause.

“Last year’s event attracted great support from a wide range of property professionals from investors and developers to architects and financial businesses and we hope to encourage even more cyclists to register this year. It’s a great day out for riders of all ability levels to enjoy.”

Highlighting the importance of the race to the charity, Julie Bentley, Action for Children’s chief executive said:

“We are extremely grateful to CBRE and all participants whose collective pedal power has raised vital funds for us which has already had such a huge impact on the lives of so many young people. The money raised helps our team support young people leaving care, provides emotional support and helps them to secure education, employment and training opportunities.”
