Carcassonne to San Remo: CBRE's 2016 EMEA Charity Bike Ride Challenge

Jun 29, 2016 4:55 PM ET

100 CBRE employees, sponsors, clients, suppliers, family and friends faced a cycling challenge through the undulating hills of France, finishing on the Italian Riviera. The 650km ride, which started June 5, began in the medieval castle town of Carcassonne before finishing on the Mediterranean coast in San Remo on June 9. A number of significant climbs were involved on the route to the beach in San Remo, notably the 3,000 m climb on the third day of cycling between Carpentras and Digne les Bains.

All money raised from corporate and participant sponsorship supports CBRE’s program with the children’s international development charity, Plan International. CBRE’s unique program to build a better future for children in Sierra Leone is supported by UK Government funds. This means that for every £1/€1 donated towards our program, international aid budgets will multiply it by nine – enabling CBRE’s funds to go nine times further. This is a life-changing investment in Sierra Leone.
