In aid of Deutsche Bank's Born to Be Charities of the Year, this weekend a team of 160 Deutsche Bank employees took on the opening stages of the 2014 Tour de France. In the first ever DeutscheBike cycling challenge, the team collectively covered a total of 26,370 miles by riding either 300-miles over three days (three stages) starting in Yorkshire or 100-miles over one day (one stage) from Cambridge to London.
A fantastic example of determination, teamwork and commitment, the event united employees from a huge cross section of the Bank: male, female, novice to expert cyclists, from offices in London, Birmingham and as far afield as New York, Singapore and Sydney.
Supported by a professional team of organisers, medics, chaperones and representatives from the Bank’s project team, DeutscheBike demonstrated what can be achieved by pushing your own mental and physical boundaries.
To date, the ride has raised more than £200,000 for Deutsche Bank’s Born to Be Charities of the Year, Malaria No More UK and Rainbow Trust Children's Charity.
