We'd like to welcome our new silver sponsor 'Mike Oliver Associates'
A local multi-award winning firm of independent financial advisers who have generously agreed to support our charity cycle ride. Mike Oliver will also be cycling the whole event with us in aid of the Mayor's Charities and the ABF Soldiers' Charity. It's great to have him on board.

Ready, stead, launch!
We have officially launched the Brighton2Paris Charity Cycle Ride 2017 sponsored by Oakley Property & The Hyde Group. At a packed out Mayor's Parlour in Brighton Town Hall, we all gathered to hear the latest updates from the organising team and meet fellow cyclists and sponsors. The launch event took place in front of local press and media and both the Mayor Pete West and sponsors spoke about why they have become involved in this amazing event.
Mayor Pete West commented:
"I'm really excited about joining the Paris to Brighton charity cycle ride, which I aim to complete riding on a tandem. I’m hoping we’ll not only raise much needed funds for our charities, but also strengthen the Entente Cordial as we are greeted by Mayors across northern France. This is the year of the bicycle, so as the “cycling mayor” I’m doing all I can to encourage people to discover the benefits of getting on a bike. The ride will be an opening event for the Brighton Fringe, and when we get back to the city we’ll be joining a special Fringe City community day. It’s all going to be huge fun with purpose, and I am really grateful to the Brighton Property Consortium for their commitment in organising this for the city.”
With special thanks to Neil Laughton and the Penny Farthings for creating a visual spectacle!
