Running from April to September, the DeutscheBike Summer Series is a collection of cycling themed events for employees in aid of our two Born to Be Charities of the Year: Sparks and World Child Cancer. Events are catered to every ability and range from live music spin classes to cycling London to Frankfurt, tackling five countries in five days.
Last year 160 employees challenged themselves to cycle either 300 or 100 miles of the Tour de France* route and it was a great success, uniting employees from across the UK and as far afield as New York and Sydney. This ride raised an outstanding quarter of a million pounds for the young people supported by our 2014 Charities of the Year: Malaria No More UK and Rainbow Trust Childrens’ Charity.
Part of our Born to Be programme, DeutscheBike challenges employees to explore their potential so that young people can realise theirs.
