CYCLE TO 2015

By ARNEY FENDER KATSALIDIS

Last month, Arney Fender Katsalidis’ Managing Director Earle Arney had the privilege of participating in CYCLE TO MIPIM, a fundraising charity that saw some 90 cyclists ride 1452km from London, England to Cannes, France. The cyclists, all built-environment professions, rode for five days to reach the annual international property show.

CYCLE TO MIPIM brought together a love for the sport and the opportunity to raise money for great causes. The charities that will receive support raised by the cycle trip include Article 25, The Emthonjeni Trust, Multiple System Atrophy Trust, Coram, and Tom’s Trust.

The CYCLE TO… charity has raised over £2 million for supported charities since its first ride in 2006. In 2015 alone the group raised more than £250,000.

Earle Arney shares his experience of the cycling endurance event:


“…The plains of Champagne are ringed by mountains that we invariably had to climb. Once over the top, we entered a landscape of vineyards and forests, ensconced by fog. Cycling past the rows and rows of winter vines, the defined formations providing a parallax of corridors to view deep into the landscape, until being consumed by the shroud of fog was a sight to behold. This, together with the brief but mystical beam of sunlight upon us, is all I need from this cycling experience.  Beautiful!...


…I have heard others’ observations of the rider camaraderie. This is undeniable. Perhaps it is because, like rowing, you must work as a team to really unlock the potentially of this sport. Or perhaps it is because it is a result of shared experiences that take you to places you least expect and least wish to express.”
