The Office Group Bike Ride – Staff Invitation

The Office Group Bike Ride – Staff Invitation


Please note, this event is free of charge – and by invitation only.
There are limited spaces so please sign up ASAP!


The Office Group is proud to present, for the third year running, our invitation-only cycling event on Friday 24th June 2016.  This is a fantastic opportunity to network while cycling to your heart’s content!

TOG 19There are two routes to choose from: a more challenging hilly 60 mile loop (with 1,662 metres of climbing) and a shorter (flatter) route of 40 miles (with 1209 metres of climbing). It’s as hard and testing as you want to make it, or a chance to ride at your own pace and enjoy the stunning scenery.   Both routes follow the same roads for part of the journey and you will enjoy coffee/cake and lunch with all riders, regardless of which route your choose.  

Everything will be professionally organised for you by Ride25 including a hearty lunch, a coffee and cake stop, support vehicles and tour crew including a bike mechanic and first aider, so that all you need to do is enjoy this amazing challenge and ultimately have fun!

The ride is open to all cycling abilities and all types of bikes. We do recommend that you use a road bike, however, previous Ride25 Riders have used hybrids and Bromptons.

Remember, it’s still work….. you can also do some great networking and business in the saddle!

*** Please note, this event is free of charge – and by invitation only ***
