Ryder Architecture’s cycle team gathered at one of its key UK projects, One West Regent Street, a 135,000 sqft Grade A office development in Glasgow, before heading off on a 870 mile UK challenge.
Bobby Moncur backed Ryder’s cyclists as they embarked on the gruelling ten day journey, for charity.
The cycle challenge is part of Ryder’s 60th anniversary celebrations, supporting eight national charities - Bright Red, Bryson’s Animal Refuge, CRASH, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Percy Hedley Foundation, The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice, The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and Zoe’s Place.
A keen cyclist, Bobby will welcome the team back in Newcastle 10 days later on 20 June. The former Scotland and Newcastle United captain, said: “It is great to hear of this kind of personal commitment from Ryder’s staff to raise money for charities close to their hearts and 20 years ago I may have tried to join them !
“They started in my native country Scotland and are finishing in my now home city of Newcastle, so I have a real affinity with their challenge. To cycle over 80 miles a day is no small feat. But for 10 consecutive days it is a massive challenge. I wish them all the best of luck and look forward to celebrating with them on their arrival in Newcastle.”
