Tour de Tech – a summer cycling series – June to September
I am delighted to invite you to join the ‘Tour de Tech, a summer cycling series that will bring together entrepreneurs, investors and professionals for an evening bike ride, some food and some high quality networking. I hope you will join us for as many of the dates as you can – these will run every two weeks from June to September.
Each ride will start and end by a pub around Oxford and one of the Tour de Tech members will plan a route on quiet roads. It is a chance to ride with a group, make the most of the summer weather, discover new rides in the area and of course meet some new people. We have arranged a meal deal with each of the pubs. It is all informal and the purpose if just to get some interested and like-minded people together. All abilities welcome!

As ever, it is the people involved that will make it fun and I would be grateful if you could forward this email to two friends who you think might enjoy getting involved - Entrepreneurs, CXOs, Investors, tech transfer professionals, legal and financial professionals, etc.
The first event will kick off on Tuesday 13 June at 6pm from the Bear & Ragged Staff in Cumnor, just 3 miles out of Oxford and we will do a 30-40km loop through the quiet country roads. There will be an informal dinner back at the pub afterwards.
Kind regards and happy cycling!
