Tackling the Northern Power Ride
Manchester Director, James Bruce will be taking part in the Club Peloton Northern Power Ride from Newcastle to Manchester. Taking place on 5th / 6th September, James will be cycling over 200 miles, spending up to 10 hours a day on his bike. With over 65 people from the property and construction industry taking part, the ride aims to focus on promoting diversity and inclusion, as well as providing the opportunity to meet new contacts and raise funds for two fantastic charities, Coram and CRISIS.
The route will see the Peloton start in Newcastle, travel through County Durham, through the Yorkshire Dales and then onto Manchester where they hope to arrive late afternoon on 6th September. With each rider set to raise at least £750, the Peloton hopes to raise a significant amount of money for the chosen charities. Coram, is committed to improving the lives of the UK’s most vulnerable children and young people. Established in 1739, Coram is the UK’s oldest charity, supporting vulnerable children for over 280 years, they support over 1 million vulnerable children every year. CRISIS, is the national charity for homelessness, they help people directly out of homelessness and campaign for the changes needed to solve it altogether.
James is no stranger to taking on physical challenges. Having recently completed the Yorkshire 3 Peaks to raise funds for one of our projects, the Contact Theatre, and having previously competed in triathlons, he is looking forward to this experience, “I’m not one to shy away from a challenge. Whilst I’ve completed long-distance triathlons and runs over one day, I’ve never been on a bike for such a long period. Being based in Manchester, I frequently ride out through Yorkshire and the Peaks but this will be a great opportunity to explore other areas and make new contacts in the industry. It’s also a great chance to raise much needed funds for Club Peloton’s two chosen charities, CRISIS and Coram.”
