Four members of law firm Irwin Mitchell’s real estate team are setting off on a gruelling three day 260 mile charity bike ride to raise money for the Canal & River Trust.

The team, which includes Irwin Mitchell Partner and National Head of Real Estate, Paul Firth, will start the journey in London on 10 September starting from Little Venice.

The ride passes through the Chilterns and then the Peak District before travelling through a section of the Yorkshire Tour de France route before reaching Leeds on 13 September.

Joining Paul Firth will be David Goy and Tracey Mardell from Irwin Mitchell’s Sheffield office, and Manchester-based Paul Barnard.

The bike ride is being done as part of the Canal & River Trust’s Great British Bike Off challenge. Money raised by the event is used by the organisation to maintain and improve the waterways in England and Wales.

Paul Firth said:

Expert Opinion
The Canal & River Trust is the charity which has custodianship of the 2,000 mile network of canals and rivers across England and Wales. It has to self-fund most of their activities and we were therefore keen to assist them in their efforts. The team has been training hard and we are now looking forward to the challenge and raising as much money as possible.”
