On 25 May, double Olympic gold medallist Philip Hindes MBE will be at the City Cycling Championships, a new event in the City Championships calendar. Raising money for Maggie’s, Future for Heroes and 21st Century Legacy, keen cyclists from the Square Mile will be taking part in competitions at the Lee Valley Velopark, as well as receiving coaching from Hindes himself.
Sponsored by Signai Wealth, chief executive Carnegie Smyth says they were eager to get involved as a new and fun way to engage their clients. “We have thrown down the gauntlet and challenged them to come and spend the afternoon at the Olympic Velodrome,” says Smyth. “They will be coached by Hindes and then taken to the track for a competitive event with an awards ceremony to finish. They’re a successful bunch and the City Championshps provides the competitive element that catches their eye.”
Hindes is looking forward to it, too: “As all the guests are very successful entrepreneurs who have excelled in business, they don’t like finishing second. I am expecting some fireworks.”
Greg Malone, head of wealth management at Signia Wealth, says: “Cycling is great because its a low impact sport that is easily accessible and can be very sociable too. The success of Hindes and the rest of the GB team both in London 2012 and last year in Brazil has had a massive effect. We are glad to be supporting the charities sponsored by City A.M. and City Championships.
