Architects pedal their way to £50,000 charity target

  • 1 Comment

A team of cyclists including a core of 12 from Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSH+P) has completed a 1,100 mile charity ride from London to Florence

The 22-strong Veloflo team also included architects from Hawkins Brown, Karakusevic Carson, TP Bennett, AHMM and Scott Brownrigg, as well as a handful of engineers and contractors.

Starting at The Cheesegrater, the Grand Tour group took 10 days to peddle its way through the Loire Valley, over the Alps and down into Florence (the birth place of Richard Rogers).

The aching cyclists raised nearly £50,000 for three charities: Architecture for Humanity, Cancer Research UK and Alzheimer’s Research UK.

    Please try to remember that cyclists do not peddle unless they have a bundle of onions, a Breton shirt and a beret. Cyclists pedal, using their pedals and they are sometimes described as pedalling. This is an error I see too often and I have now snapped. Please get it right.

    Chapeau, as they say, to the teams involved and well done for raising the money. See you at Dunwich in July, I hope.
