The event will be broken up into 100 mile stretches over five days.

 

RBS employees have started a mammoth cycle which will take them from London to Edinburgh over five days. The cycle aims to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for The Prince’s Trust, who the bank is celebrating a forty year relationship with.

 

The starting gun was fired by comedian Hugh Dennis and football pundit John Salako in London this morning and cyclists will stop first at Northants, before cycling through Staffordshire, Birmingham, Manchester, Blackburn and Carlisle. The challenge will finish on Friday 16 September at the RBS headquarters in Gogarburn, Edinburgh.



 

The event will be broken up into 100 mile stretches over five days with some staff cycling the entire distance and others cycling smaller 100 mile or 35 mile stages. Chief Executive Ross McEwan will cycle part of the route with over 600 employees.

Prince’s Trust Ambassador Hugh Dennis said:

“I think it’s great so many people from RBS have given up the time to support The Prince’s Trust.”
