Message from JTP's Managing Partner, Marcus Adams:
I've been attending MIPIM for the last 8 years, and whilst I sat sipping rosé in the sunshine I have often thought that one year I will cycle to Cannes.
Well, in my 50th year I decided to enter the ballot and to hit the submit button. To my shock and horror I was successful!
So on 8 March I set off from London with almost 200 other riders. Whilst I enjoy cycling, this gruelling challenge of covering 1500km over 6 days is something like I've never attempted before.
I have been training hard since before Christmas in the cold and the wet, and will be hopefully assisted by trying to continue my 'dry January' to 13 March.
I am cycling not only for a personal goal but to raise money for the charity Coram, and especially Coram Adoption. With the number of children in care at its highest for many years, Coram finds loving permanent homes for UK's most vulnerable children.
It is a wonderful charity, and from my own experience is one that I would like to support as much as possible in setting a target of raising £4,000.
If you are able to donate any amount to this worthy cause, and help get me over the finish line in Cannes I would be very grateful.
