Invesco Ride Henley in association with CASCAID 2019
28 June 2019
Make a difference this year, join Invesco in fundraising for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). We are delighted to introduce the first ever Invesco Ride Henley in partnership with CASCAID who brings together colleagues from around the asset management industry (and friends and family) to raise money for charity. After a successful 2018, CASCAID raised over £2.35million for Cancer Research, and is now aiming to build a new cardiac catheter lab for GOSH – their current one is not fit for purpose. You can help towards achieving this by registering to cycle as part of this sportive.
We will start and finish at Invesco HQ in Henley-on-Thames. Before departing the riders will be thoroughly briefed on the challenge ahead and the format of the day. All client bicycles will be thoroughly safety checked by Adventure Café staff to check that they are safe and suitable for the ride ahead. On the off-chance that any issues can’t be repaired, spare bikes will be available.
Although the course will be waymarked, and all riders will be issued with GPX files, riders also have the option to ride with a cycle leader. Support vehicles will be nearby at all times to assist with any first aid or mechanical incidents.
Registration will open from 8.30 am where we will provide breakfast and where you will have the opportunity to get ready for the day. Food will be provided en route and you will arrive back to a BBQ at the end.
There will be two course options available, please specify which one you wish to do when registering.
There is the short course: 50km or the long course: 100km.
The event will also have chip timing to ensure an accurate collection of timings.
