We are thrilled to have Imperial Yachts on the road with us again this year as they will be branding one of the support vehicles for the ride.

Director, Julia Stewart said:

“At Imperial, we are keenly aware that the health of the superyacht industry is intimately related to that of the world’s oceans. That’s why we take an active interest in initiatives that preserve, protect and enhance the marine environment. We are proud to have sponsored the inaugural London to Monaco Cycle Ride in 2016 and we will continue to put its vital work at the heart of our fundraising activities. Being partner for the 2017 is the continuity of our investment in oceans protection alongside Blue Marine Foundation, and our support to their projects around the world.”

What better place for our 2017 London to Monaco ride to depart from than BLUE's home, Somerset House. Standing grand along the banks of the river Thames, Somerset House offers an impressive palatial setting for our 2017 riders to set off from on Sunday 17th September.

Jonathan Reekie, Somerset House Trust said:

"Somerset House Trust is home to many creative organisations and charities including Blue Marine Foundation. Environmental sustainability and the future of our planet is a priority for us and we are proud to be supporting the London to Monaco cycle ride."

We are absolutely thrilled to announce our London to Monaco 2017 water bottle sponsor Electric Shadow. Even more exciting, Electric Shadow is a film production company owned by BLUE ambassador and 2016 London to Monaco rider extraordinaire known to most who rode with us last year as superhero 'Merman'!

John said: 

“The 2016 London to Monaco ride was one of the best-worst-fun-terrifying-rewarding-exhausting-multihyphenate things I’ve ever done. I’m so sad not to be able to do the full ride this year. But I’ll be with you all every sip of the way. And please, when you’re halfway up a mountain, remember a little bit of creative swearing can be very motivational!"
