In September 2017, some 235 cyclists from BP came together as #OneTeam riding from Eton Dorney Lake in Windsor, the London 2012 Paralympic rowing course, in support of the British Paralympic Association (BPA)
Paralympic athlete and BP ambassador Richard Whitehead joined the riders on the day to share his recent London 2017 success. He gave an inspirational speech before joining the riders at the start line to wave them all off.
Undeterred by the wet conditions, all the cyclists successfully completed their rides in good time. The OneTeam cyclists raised an incredible £8,500 in support of the BPA – an amount that doubled with BP's matched funding.
Now in its eighth year, the One Team cycle ride is organised by a team of BP staff, and offers three routes (25km, 50km and 100km) accommodating cyclists of all abilities. It will be repeated again in 2018 with date and location yet to be finalised. Watch this space!
