Calling all supporters to join the BLUE Marine Foundation for the 2017 London to Monaco Cycle Ride!
This September (Sunday 17 – Tuesday 26), BLUE Marine Foundation and its members will be tackling the intense challenge of cycling from London to Monaco to raise vital funds to help protect our oceans. Last year, BLUE raised over £250,000 for ocean conservation and, this year, funds raised will look to support our joint Solent Oyster Restoration Project on the south coast.
With this year’s funds supporting ocean conservation in our local waters, MDL Marinas is supporting the bike ride with the hope to raise even more funds. Over the last two years we’ve worked closely with BLUE to reach the mission to reintroduce 1 million oysters to the local waters by the end of 2017 to help clean up the Solent. We’re nearly there but every ounce of support from our members counts!
This is where you come in - if you would like to take part or support the ride then don’t miss your chance as entries close on the 31st May. Cyclists will depart from London 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 1,400 km and 19,000 metres of elevation, while raising vital funds for BLUE’s work on our local waters. We will be supporting the cyclists every pedal of the way!
We’ve partnered with BLUE Marine Foundation to fully support its mission to combat over-fishing and the destruction of biodiversity in our oceans, its aim is to put 10% of the world’s oceans under protection by 2020 and 30% by 2030. Challenges such as this offer a once-in-a-lifetime chance to join this mission. If you think you have what it takes, or to find out more, visit the London to Monaco Bike Ride website
