The Boss Bike Rides: all you need to know…

BOSS: ‘Excellent, first rate…. to exercise control or authority over’…‘the hub of a propeller’ (Merriam Webster Dictionary)

Established by Marcellus Baz (CEO of Switch UP Nottingham) and Nick Owen (CEO of The Mighty Creatives), the BBRs provide informal opportunities for CEOs, founders and senior managers of any business (family to micro to small to corporate -ie anyone) to meet, network, socialise and become a peer support network – all through the medium of shared bike rides around Nottingham and beyond.

The rides also provide opportunities for participants (BB Riders) to fund raise for children and young peoples charities. BB Riders aim to collectively ride 1,000,000 km over a year, starting on Friday 7 August 2020. Altogether, we aim to fund raise £100,000.

To become a BB Rider, you’ll agree to organise or participate in a group bike ride (ie more than 2 people) anywhere in the world. You can ride together or independently, as long as you find ways of keeping in touch during your ride.

A BB Ride will typically involve highlighting the natural highlights of where you’re riding, provide moments of shared learning from each other’s experiences and insights, and the chance to share food and drink en route. You’ll also use the opportunity to fundraise for your favourite children’s charity.

All we ask is that you ride together, you’re willing to share your experiences of ‘boss-ness’ and that you keep us informed of your progress so that we can tell the world how we’re doing collectively.

My page is dedicated to raising funds for The Mighty Creatives through JustGiving here although you can use any other platform you like.
