YACHTING PAGES' CEO STEVE CROWE TO PARTICIPATE IN EIGHT-DAY LONDON TO MONACO CHARITY CYCLE RIDE
Departing from Windsor Royal Park on Tuesday 17th September, the fourth edition will make its way south, crossing the Bay of Biscay, before traveling through the Spanish Basque country. The ride will then continue over the Pyrenees, down through Provence and into Monaco, finishing at the Prince’s Palace on Tuesday 24th September.
This will be Crowe’s second consecutive year participating in London to Monaco, riding the last day in 2018. Crowe commented, “I found the organisers, ride leaders and BLUE to be amazing last year, I knew that this year I had to do the whole ride.
“I wanted to get involved with BLUE for a number of reasons, firstly because Yachting Pages has made a living from the superyacht industry for the past 16 years and although I’ve participated in numerous charity cycle rides in the past I felt it was time to give something back to the oceans.”
Crowe has been training for this year’s London to Monaco cycle ride for over a year now, combining regular 60-mile Sunday club rides with riding to and from work every day.
In June 2019, Yachting Pages confirmed its official corporate partnership with BLUE and now in collaboration with Octo Marine, Yachting Pages and BLUE have launched ‘Save Our Seas (S.O.S) Bottle Project’, a campaign designed to help the fight against plastic pollution in the world’s oceans.
BLUE exists to create marine-protected areas, develop models of sustainable fishing and restore marine habitats, having already contributed to a considerable amount of ocean conservation worldwide.
“Increasing BLUE’s awareness within the superyacht industry and raising money for BLUE are key to our relationship – this isn’t just about a cycle ride, it’s about helping BLUE to restore the ocean back to a healthy state,” added Crowe.
