Institute of Couriers’ chair completes London to Paris cycle ride

parisIoCCongratulations to Carl Lomas MBE, Chairman of the Institute of Couriers and member of the FORS Governance and Standards Advisory Group, who completed a four-day cycle from London to Paris to raise money for the transport charity Transaid.

The journey began on London’s cycle superhighway with a send-off from Mike Brown, Commissioner at Transport for London (TfL), and Carl crossed the finish line smartly attired in a shirt and tie after being joined by 50 other Transaid cyclists in Paris for the final push. Over the four days 100,000 tweets were sent in support using the hashtag #ioc4transaid and it looks as though an incredible £100,000 will have been raised.

Transaid is an international development organisation focusing on safe, available and sustainable transport. For more information on Transaid, please visit their website.
