Barclays launches bike race
Barclays has put its support behind a bike race in London that is looking to help the Prostate Cancer Charity raise in excess of £1 million in 2008. The brains behind the race is Barclays Capital’s chief UK economist, David Hillier, who was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer at the tender age of 37. The Real Man Cycle Challenge will be contested by teams of four over a 100-kilometre course around the City, Westminster and Canary Wharf. I’m in negotiations with several financial institutions about taking part. More details can be found at http://www.prostate-cancer.org.uk/misc/cycle_challenge2.asp.
