Property Week’s Tim Clark

Members of the property industry donned lycra, climbed into the saddle and looked to work off some of the Christmas turkey last week to help raise money in aid of those affected by motor neurone disease (MND).

The Mount A Bike event, which was held at Mount Anvil’s Royal Docks West scheme plus three other locations across London, saw Savills, Knight Frank, JLL and Mount Anvil compete to see who could cycle the furthest in the allotted time as well as working together to cycle a combined 2,500km in only six hours.

Property Week’s legal and professional editor Tim Clark, pedalled a respectable 10.5km to help the cause, aided by a pep talk from England and Chelsea footballer Millie Bright, who backed the initiative.

In total, participants smashed the target, cycling 2,670km and raising £20,000 in the process for My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, a charity committed to helping improve the lives of those affected by MND established by Scottish rugby legend Doddie Weir, who died last November aged 52.

Bright said: “It was amazing to see so many people coming together across London and pedalling their socks off for Mount A Bike. A great team effort.”
