Three dozen of Universal Music’s UK-based staff are limbering up for an epic 300-mile, three-day, charity bike ride from our HQ in Kensington, across the Channel, to the company’s quartier general on the cobbled streets of Paris.

Departing on September 15, the mixed ability group will be joined by four of the Universal Music France team to make a 40-strong peloton who will aid each through the busy streets of London, over the hilly approach to Dover, along the flats of northern France and finally down the iconic Champs-Élysées.

As well as strengthening cross-channel relations, the riders are spending three days in the saddle to raise money for two charities close to the hearts of everyone at the company: Nordoff Robbins and FENVAC. Each rider has been tasked with raising a minimum of £1000 and the group are working towards a grand total of £50,000.

Good luck to all the riders involved and if you want to help them reach their targets, head over to the Race Nation website.
