RBC London to Paris Cycle Challenge

RBC London Paris Cycle Challenge 01

Senior executives from Royal Bank of Canada this week embarked on a 300-mile cycle challenge to the French capital for the children’s charity, Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The gruelling four day event started by bringing the City’s busy Upper Thames Street to a standstill as over 20 members of RBC staff set off at 6:45am.

RBC Capital Markets CEO Dave Thomas, one of the brave cyclists taking part says: 'I am excited because the proceeds are going to a fantastic cause – although I am not sure what I have let myself in for. Three hundred miles in four days is a daunting prospect, but we have a great team to help each other across the line'.
