TEAMS from the City are signing up to CARE’s Gold Bike Ride supported by City A.M. on Saturday 23 June. The route will see cyclists ride a minimum of 65 miles and a maximum of 130 miles of the Olympic Road Race route a month before the nation’s competitors take to the saddle.

A team from UBS Global Asset Management is the latest to sign up to the challenge. Fund Analyst, Vincent, says, “I was reading City A.M. and it seemed like a great thing to do with work colleagues near London. We’re all looking forward to experiencing the route the Olympic cyclists will take and supporting a worthwhile cause at the same time.”

UBS joins teams from other City firms including Ashurst, Deloitte and Centrica to take on the challenge in support of CARE International. The global aid and development charity works in 84 countries to help the world’s poorest people find lasting routes out of poverty. CARE’s work includes micro-finance projects that equip poor people with financial services – secure savings, credit, insurance and other products – to break the cycle of socio-economic exclusion.
