On Sunday 1 October, a team of riders from across CUK will be cycling 45 miles for The Prince’s Trust annual Palace to Palace bike ride as part of Team Cunard, to help change young lives!

As Cunard celebrates 15 years of partnership with The Prince’s Trust, colleagues will be pedaling from Buckingham Palace through the rolling Surrey countryside, down The Long Walk, past the iconic Windsor Castle and finishing up at Windsor Racecourse, as they fundraise to help give young people the chance they deserve in life.

Hear from member of Team Cunard, Bob Dixon, below to find out more about his journey, from Palace to Palace:

As the CUK Cycle-to-work champion, I am very much looking forward to the Palace-to-Palace ride in support of The Princes Trust.  My daily commute is a 14 mile round trip but this event is several times that distance. 

I’m looking forward to cycling on London’s network of new cycle paths, something I‘ve never done and the feeling of achievement when we finally roll up in Windsor.  If you happen to be in the area do come along and give us a wave!

If you would like to come along and support your colleagues on the day, Team Cunard will set off at 8:45am from Buckingham Palace and take this route to Windsor! Please note the route maps are subject to change at last minute.

If you’re supporting a particular colleague on the day, Palace to Palace recommend that you meet them at the finish so you can cheer as they cross the finish line and watch the medal collection. There is an end of event village including fairground attractions and refreshment stalls and plenty of parking at Royal Windsor Racecourse. More information about Palace to Palace can be found here.

Good luck Team Cunard!
