The Knight Frank Cycle to MIPIM is a seven day event that takes the scenic – and low-carbon – route from London to Cannes, arriving at MIPIM, the renowned international real estate fair.
First organised in 2006 by Club Peloton, the 1,438km journey aims to raise vast sums of money for charitable causes. In the last edition in 2019, before a Covid delayed two years, half a million pounds was generated.
The team are already well on their way and are expected to arrive in Cannes today (March 15th).

Turvec Rides To The Riviera
Among the riders is our very own Frank Morgan who leads our Turvec Studios projects. We already know he’s a more than competent cyclist, having ridden the whopping 662km of the length of England, in, yes, one ride of 34 continuous hours.
For this year’s Cycle to MIPIM, Frank is riding his vintage Raleigh put together as an homage to the Lotus JPS Formula 1 car livery.
We know it’s been an epic so far, with both beating sun and driving rain making sure the peloton are kept on their toes.
Frank is already well over half way to his own personal fundraising target. To donate, visit: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/francis-morgan1
The main beneficiary of fundraising goes to Coram, a charity dedicated to helping children get a fair chance in life across the world.
