Last look at Mipim - by bike

For our last look at Mipim 2017, we go outside of the exhibition halls, to a marvellous Belgian charitable feat; for the second year, the T-Palm Recycle2 MIPIM was a wonderful and daring achievement for the 25 Belgian riders who travelled to Cannes in true sporting style, and were heartily welcomed by a boisterous crowd and the popping of champagne corks on opening night. This was right on the steps of the Belgian Surrealist Pavilion, and those (many) non-belgians who just happened to bepassing by realised just why we call ourselves ‘surreal’. Over the course of 6 days, these motivated cyclists covered 1250 km, dedicating themselves body and soul to their collective sporting effort, relying on close peloton teamwork, months of gruelling physical preparation and a dedicated crew to reach their common goal.

Their effort also highlighted their steadfast dedication to ‘Renovassistance’, for which they have raised an incredible €9000.This non-profit organisation is committed to procuring decent, clean and affordable housing for particularly disadvantaged families through the refurbishment of derelict buildings in the Brussels region, a goal which our riders intimately share in.

Our cycling squad also shared their experience with two other pelotons of passionate riders.On Day 4, they integrated a small peloton of 10 riders from Paris for a brilliant day of cycling through springtime valleys of flowering orchards and promising vineyards round Mâcon. And on Day 5, they shared the majestic landscapes of the Vercors with a large peloton of 100 English riders all headed south toward Cannes.
