Cousins & Cousins Countdown to Concours D’Elegance
We are delighted to announce that Ben will be putting on his most stylish attire and cycling alongside Peter Murray as part of the Concours D’Elegance bicycle ride. On 10th June architects and affiliated persons will take to the streets to ride around the Rapha London Nocturne Circuit. Following on from last year, the pair will return to pedal together.
Ben and Peter will be supporting Vélosophy, an incredible bicycle brand who operate on a ‘one for one’ promise. For every bicycle sold they will donate another to a young schoolgirl in Ghana! Vélosophy have kindly gifted brand new bicycles to cycle during Concours D’Elegance!
“Bikes actually empower women – and girls increase attendance in school with almost 30% and their results with nearly 60% when they have access to a bike of their own – And that’s why we decided donate bicycles to young girls.” Jimmy Östholm – Founder of Vélosophy Bikes
More About Concours D’Elegance
The event is organised by Peter Murray with a view to promote more considerate road use and sharing of space within the City. According recent studies, narrow streets and high concentrations of people within the Square Mile can potentially increase the likelihood of conflict between cyclists and pedestrians. We are thrilled to be part of this prominent and important event coinciding with the London Festival of Architecture.
“ It’s all about more considerate road use, sharing space in the city and making better places. Considerate cycling makes cities better! I am very happy to support new bike brand Vélosophy, they look great are helping a great cause”. Peter Murray , Chairman of the NLA
