Bristol property agents to get on their bikes

Bristol property agents are taking to the roads of North Somerset to raise funds for charities.

A total of 202 property agents, their friends and families have signed up to take part in the first Bristol Property Agents Association (BPAA) Cyclosportive on September 22. 

The non-competitive event will present four-person teams with the option of 30 mile and 60 mile courses through the North Somerset and Mendip countryside. 

The event, which will start and finish at the Redwood Lodge Hotel and Country Club in Failand, will be rounded off by an evening BBQ.  Funds raised will go the Sarcoma UK and Help for Heroes charities.

Jayne Rixon, partner at Burston Cook, recently took over as president of the BPAA.  She said: “A surprising number of the city’s property agents are keen cyclists and this seemed a great way for them to enjoy their sport while helping two very worthy causes.

“The numbers taking part have grown to an excellent level and we are looking forward to a great event.”

Last year the Bristol Property Agents Association (BPAA) raised £2,452.68 for the Bristol branch of Macmillan Cancer Support.
