2018 Event Highlights
‘The Mile in the Sky’ Guinness World Record attempt
We are hoping to set a new world record for cycling a mile in the sky, inside an observation tower, i.e. the British Airways i360 pod! The plan is that on Thursday 3rd May, we meet at the i360 c.7am where we will all board the pod with our bicycles (depending on how many of us there are!) and start cycling around it as it ascends and then descends again. On reaching ground level, the team will cycle out of the pod, straight over the start line and on their way to Brussels! The i360 are opening especially early for us and joining in with the record attempt. I’m sure it will be local headline news and attract a lot of media attention.
EU Parliament Private Tour and meet with MEP Keith Taylor
Upon the team’s arrival in Brussels we will head straight to the EU Parliament building for a private tour and meeting with our MEP Keith Taylor who has kindly assisted us in arranging this tour. Perhaps the only operativity you will get to see inside the EU in your lifetime.

Who we are
We are a group of local property professionals with the common goal of creating an annual cycle event for locally based charities.
After a successful few years in the property industry we decided that we would like to give something back to the city and raise awareness of organisations in great need of everyone's help.
Brighton and Hove have many amazing worthwhile charities, however we have decided to support the Mayor's Charities which this year includes 27 equally important organisations, and the ABF Soldiers' Charity.
How do I take part?
We are looking for extra participants and organisations to take part. If you can commit to raising money for these three worthwhile charities then this event will raise the profile of your organisation's commitment corporate social responsibility and provide you with an opportunity to network with fellow property professionals.
