jlt_ciclism"Team JLT Re", represented by Emma BIGGS, Paul HARRIS, David IBESON, Barry KEEGAN, Chris MEDLOCK, Harry OWEN and Andrew SAINSBURY have entered a team into the Inaugural Lime Street to Monte Carlo Charity Cycle Ride in order to raise funds for The Wooden Spoon Charity and Action on Addiction. A target of GBP 50,000 has been set. The inaugural event left LLOYD's of London, Lime Street on the 30th August 2013 and involves a 1,300 km journey over 9 days. Team JLT Re arrives in Casino Square, Monte Carlo on the 7th September 2013 in time for the annual Reinsurance conference.

The journey presents the riders with an average daily ride of 145 km across a variety of treacherous terrains. In total, they will climb 12,920 meters (42,389 ft), over the 9 days, the equivalent of cycling up Mount Everest more than one and a half times. Their toughest single day in the saddle is an energy sapping grind through the Alps including a 5,000 meters (16,270 ft) ascent.

Founded in 1983, Wooden Spoon charity supports mentally and physically disadvantaged children. Established in 2007, Action On Addiction is the only charity working across the addiction field in research, prevention, treatment, professional education, support for families, children and campaigns.
