In September, Blue Marine Foundation will be cycling from London to Monaco to raise money to help save the oceans.
60 cyclists will depart from Somerset House with a celebrity send-off and will be welcomed ten days later by Prince Albert II of Monaco at his palace. The route will take in 20,000m of elevation over 1400km, through three countries. The average daily distance is 150km.
Blue Marine Foundation has partnered with Rapha Travel to deliver the event. Last year’s event drove donations of £280,000 for marine conservation.
Rapha Travel have created a challenging new route (full details of which can be found here.) The event costs £3,250 per person based on double occupancy.
The event is now seeking riders and sponsors for the 2017 event, taking place from the 17th to 26th September.
The full 10-day itinerary is open to a maximum of 30 riders, with the opportunity for a further 30 to join the 6-day journey from Lyon to Monaco.
Both the opening and final day rides are also available for up to 100 additional riders.
The event offers excellent networking opportunities across luxury industry sectors, including the superyacht industry. For sponsors the event provides exposure in the heart of Monaco over Monaco Yacht Show, and impressive PR.
