A team of cyclists from Redmayne Bentley is taking part in the Sportive of one of the greatest road cycling races in the world. The Leeds Office of the of the investment management and stockbroking firm have put together a team of ten riders to take on the challenge.
Led by Joint Chief Executive David Loudon, the group will take part in the UCI Road World Championships Sportive on 22nd September 2019. Starting off from Harrogate, North Yorkshire, team members will have the chance to cycle three distances within the event: the ‘short’ route of 72km, the medium route of 98km or the 150km long route.
Redmayne Bentley Chairman Keith Loudon said: “Leeds Cares is Redmayne Bentley’s Leeds office chosen charity for 2019. Their work impacts the lives of thousands of people across the Leeds region and beyond. They perform a vital role in developing new services, providing new equipment and specialist staff and they are helping to fund ground-breaking research which is absolutely essential for the future of our health services.”

Money has already been raised for Leeds Cares via a Bingo Night and a strawberry-themed Summer Fayre, where a bake sale and tombola held in the Bond Court office raised more than £300. Other staff plan to walk Yorkshire’s Three Peaks. Furthermore, as well as the planned physical challenges, a quiz night will test the brains of participants later this month.
