A team of four cyclists took on the gruelling London to Brighton Bike Ride on September 10th, completing the challenge alongside thousands of other riders and raising vital funds for built environment cancer charity, We Build The Future.

The UK’s largest multi-charity cycle ride, the London to Brighton Cycle ride on September 10th saw participants set off from Clapham Common on a 55-mile journey with the finish line on the Brighton beachfront. Thousands of riders raised money for good causes.  Having trained hard, the We Build the Future team included trustees Richard Harral and Andy von Bradsky, who were joined by digital content specialists Sean Ray and Melissa Pilfold from construction marketing and PR agency Fabrick.

Faced with blazing late summer sun, the challenging, picturesque route took the riders through the English countryside culminating in an energetic and testing climb up Ditchling Beacon before an exciting descent to Brighton’s seafront.

Commenting Richard Harral, founder of We Build The Future said: “We’re immensely proud to have completed this challenge as a united team, with all funds dedicated to improving the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer and supporting industry workers dealing with the impact of cancer.”

We Build The Future works to improve support and advice for people who work in the construction and built environment sector who face the challenge of dealing with cancer in their lives. Helping to fund research, which can accelerate improvements in the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer, the charity aims to promote health and wellbeing across the industry to help reduce the risk of people developing cancer in the first place.
