Cycle to Cannes charity is hoping to raise £280,000 from six-day ride from London to Mipim

Cyclists riding to MIPIM are on the way to raising £280,000 for charity despite the financial hardship caused by the recession.

Six riders managed to complete the 1500km distance from Greenwich to Cannes. Each rider rode between 80 to 200 miles a day. With the help of a friendly tail wind, bright sunshine and crack motorcycle outriders the peleton sped through France at an average of 27kmph.
