The Great Property Bike Ride has hit the milestone of 500 riders who have signed up to take part in the event at Sandown Park Racecourse, Surrey, on June 14 which aims to raise thousands of pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

There are now just 100 places left in the ride organised by global property advisor CBRE, and entries must be in by 5pm on May 26.

Ciaran Bird, Divisional President Advisory Services, CEO UK and Ireland at CBRE, said: “We are grateful for the support across our industry for this popular charity event. The Great Property Bike Ride has returned after a three-year hiatus due to Covid and we have new routes for all levels of ability. It will be a great day out for all, regardless of whether you’re a serious competitor or out for a social ride to raise money for a worthwhile cause.”

Entrants to the event have three routes to choose from; 40km for beginners, which takes in Sandown, Cobham, Bridge End, Effingham and Fetcham, as well as 70km and 122km routes for intermediate to advanced riders on undulating courses over the Surrey Hills with challenging climbs up the famous zig-zag road to the summit of Box Hill.

Emily Shelford, Head of Partnership Management at Macmillan, said: “We are incredibly grateful to CBRE and all of the 2023 riders for taking on this challenge in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

We cannot wait to meet everyone taking part on the 14 June and enjoy a day out whilst making a difference to the lives of people living with and affected by cancer. Thank you!”
