Get 'on yer bike' with Bizspace for North West bike tour

By Bizspace

24 Apr 2015

Lancashire businesses are being invited to take part in or sponsor the first ever Bizspace Bike Tour.

Bizspace, one of the UK’s leading providers of flexible business accommodation, has 24 business centres throughout the North West and is planning a 230-mile tour on two wheels to raise £20,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The firm is planning to hold similar tours in each of its six UK regions, with the North West event being the first, to be held from Monday 1st to Friday 5th June 2015. The tour will begin and end at Bizspace’s Europa Business Park at Cheadle Heath in Stockport, making its way through the Wirral, Chorley, Bolton, Preston, Blackburn, Burnley, Rochdale, Oldham and Manchester.

Bizspace’s sales and marketing director, Emma Long, explained the reasons behind the event.

“Macmillan has been our chosen charity in the North West for the past two years and this year we wanted to do something bigger than ever to give them a huge boost,” she said.

“A number of the Bizspace team are avid cyclists. Last year our managing director, Gareth Evans, and our building surveyor, Andrew Ainsworth who is based at our Glenfield Business Park in Blackburn, completed the London Revolution ride, which is 190 miles. We decided to take things a step further and create our own event.”

Both staff and customers will be saddling up for the event and members of the public are also being invited to join in the ‘wheelie big’ challenge, either for the full week or an individual day.

Routes vary from 33 miles to 52 miles per day. Bizspace is also looking for companies to sponsor refreshment stands en route as well as water bottles and commemorative t-shirts.

“We’d like to make this an event that the whole community can enjoy and get involved with – both individuals and businesses,” Emma added.

“Macmillan is a charity we are so proud to support and we have first-hand experience of the excellent and admirable work that they do. We can’t wait to get on our bikes and get donations rolling in.” For more information on taking part in the event or providing sponsorship, contact Elaine Warren on 01282 602047.
