The pedElle à Paris is a bicycle ride from London to Paris, intended for women involved in the property industry. On the 8th June 2013 23 ladies completed the ride and raised a great deal of money for Charity.
The ride has been inspired by the Cycle to Cannes ride (C2C), which takes place every year in March, where a group of around 90 cyclists from the property industry cycle from London to Cannes, to coincide with the start of the MIPIM property conference.
pedElle is being championed by Jennifer Ross, director at Tibbalds, and Claire Treanor, former partner at DP9. They have both taken part in the Cycle to Cannes ride on a number of occasions. Many women have expressed an interest in taking part but have found that long rides such as C2C can appear intimidating.
pedElle was created as an opportunity for keen female cyclists looking for a challenge to not only raise some money for charity but also encourage and inspire more women in the industry to cycle. This is also a great opportunity for women involved in the industry to network and get to know one another.
The ride was such a great success we have decided to organise the ride again for 2014. The ride will take place on 5,6 and 7th June 2014 and will bring together women from all parts of the property industry to cycle the 300 miles from London to Paris.
