The Robert Walters Group is proud to support Ben Cook and George Cullen, a.k.a the Hairy Handlebars, as they undertake an epic 6,000-mile charity bike ride from London to Tokyo in a bid to raise £30,000 for men’s health charities Movember and the Ian Williams Foundation.
The trip will see the 'Mo Bros' ride across the earth’s largest landmass over six-months, with their plan to reach Tokyo in time for the start of the Rugby World Cup in October.
A red-carpet send-off
On Thursday 21 March, the Group marked the start of the moustachioed duo’s adventure with a launch event at its London HQ. The event saw supporters from the Group come together with the Hairy Handlebars’ friends and family as well as representatives from Movember and the Ian Williams Foundation, and rugby legends Richard Hill MBE, Roger Uttley OBE and the Harlequins’ Mark Lambert to say a hearty goodbye.
In addition, four cycling enthusiasts from the Group, showed their support by joining the Hairy Handlebars on the first leg of their journey through London, into Kent.
‘Ridealonger’, Chief Legal Officer Richard Harris, commented: “It was brilliant to start out with two such inspirational guys. What George and Ben are doing is amazing and takes more courage than simply growing dodgy facial hair. Great cause, great mos and great bros!”
