Paragon Sponsors the 2016 CBRE EMEA Charity Bike Ride

100 CBRE employees, sponsors, clients, suppliers, family and friends are preparing to undertake a cycling challenge through the undulating hills of France, finishing on the Italian Riviera. Commencing on 5 June 2016, the 650km cycle will begin in the medieval castle town of Carcassonne before we finish on the Mediterranean coast in San Remo on 9 June 2016. A number of significant climbs are involved on our route to the beach in San Remo, notably the 3,000 m climb on our third day of cycling between Carpentras and Digne les Bains.

Not only are Paragon one of the major sponsors of the event, but we have a rider taking part.  Edward Eborall is one of the plucky riders preparing to tackle the notorious Mont Ventoux, which some say is the hardest climb to ever feature in the Tour De France.

All money raised from corporate and participant sponsorship will support CBRE’s programme with children’s international development charity, Plan International. CBRE’s unique programme to build a better future for children in Sierra Leone is supported by UK Government funds. This means that for every £1/€1 donated towards our programme, international aid budgets will multiply it by nine – enabling CBRE’s funds to go nine times further. This is a life-changing investment in Sierra Leone.
