Tuesday, 5 July, saw the inaugural PM+M Business Professionals (on 2 wheels) bike ride round the Ribble Valley. Setting off from The Green Jersey in Clitheroe, six riders, representing law firms, accountants, wealth managers, banks, telecoms providers and more set out through Bashall Eaves, Cow Ark, Chipping, Longridge, Stonyhurst, Mitton and back to Clitheroe. The ride was then uploaded (obviously) and followed by a coffee and a recording of the final 5km of the day’s Tour de France stage. Responsible riding saw the riders two-abreast and changing ride-partners regularly in order that everyone had a chance to talk to each other. Subjects throughout the day included Brexit, mergers and acquisitions, employment law, the bike retail industry, currency volatility, investments and portfolio building, advances in telecommunications technology and cycling fashion (or lack of).
The ride was a resounding success and without doubt question professional connections were made or built upon. There is a clear appetite to repeat the exercise and to include those riders who sadly couldn’t make the debut ride, as well as further invitees.
The last word must go to one of our merry band, who uploaded the ride to Strava under the title ‘Networking, Not Not Working!
