As The 1500 gathers momentum we’re delighted that it’s not just individuals taking part - corporates are taking up the challenge too!
Here’s an introduction to two of our latest corporates who will be helping us raise £150k to help vulnerable and disadvantaged children:
A group of employees from award-winning civil and structural engineering design practice Conisbee will be taking part in The 1500 as a collective. They are planning to ride to 1,500 of their projects over a 15 week period. Allan Dunsmore, Director at Conisbee comments, “Some of these will be short rides around London, while some will be longer ones out to Norwich or Cambridge. We are also hoping that we will get new cyclists involved in our cause.”

They have also opened the challenge up to runners and walkers as well as cyclists, and have already found that everyone is more motivated to get out for some activity at lunchtime. Through the Momentum Strava Club, the team have already reached 5,900kms and have been enjoying the friendly competitive chat in their company-wide meetings! Learn more about the Momentum 1500 Challenge here. As Grace Packard, Principal Consultant, says, "We’re going all-singing and all-dancing for The 1500 at Momentum.”
Good luck team Momentum, we look forward to seeing your latest 1500 news!
