We are absolutely thrilled to receive generous support from the Monaco Yacht Show Organisers this year with complimentary one days passes to the first day of the Monaco Yacht Show exclusively for our 2017 riders and sponsors. This will provide you with unparalleled access and insight into the superyacht industry's world leading event.

"For over a decade, the Monaco Yacht Show has been an active player to support the environmental actions led by the Principality of Monaco. As Organisers of the world leader event in superyachting, our mission is also to raise awareness in the yachting community and encourage tangible actions against environmental issues. Supporting the Blue Marine Foundation (BLUE) has thus become natural and in the continuity of the MYS green commitments."

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!"

We are delighted to have the support of Monaco based PR guru Natalia Langsdale at Bright Creativity in helping promote London to Monaco 2017 in Monaco and France.

Having loved taking part in the last day of London to Monaco 2016, Natalia was keen to jump on board again using her expertise to help promote the event this year amongst her network. She is also getting back in the saddle and already signed up to the last day! Kudos!

Natalia said: 

"Supporting Blue Marine Foundation is not only an honour for Bright Creativity but first and foremost a natural gesture of selflessness. Considering the importance of our oceans in our everyday lives and how we need to be conscientious about our future and that of our children’s, by pushing our limits and giving our all, the London-Monaco riders along with their sponsors, are together on the right track to help make a small but impactful difference.

Cycling the London-Monaco ride, actively promoting and finding the right sponsors and partners for the cause, is my drop in the ocean of helping push the significance of the Blue Marine Foundation’s cause out to a larger audience be it in yachting, to press, keen riders, celebrity ambassadors as well as fellow Young Professional in Yachting members."

Thrilled to announce Gym Marine's support of London to Monaco 2017. Gym Marine will be helping all our 2017 riders sooth those aches and pains by providing slick yoga mats and rollers for the evening stretching sessions throughout the ride!

Edward Thomas, Founder of Gym Marine said:

"We’re thrilled to be supporting such a great initiative! The London 2 Monaco bike ride is a fantastic example of what the yachting industry can really achieve when it gets behind a cause as close to its heart as the Blue Marine Foundation. Of course, this one is extra relevant to us as it's a chance to make a difference through physical exercise! We hope that we can help soothe some aches and pains along the route with our donation, and that all of the riders have an amazing ride!!"
