Saint-Gobain 350 ride breaks £100k

Ridefor350 saw a team of colleagues from across the Saint Gobain group cycle 425 miles in four days to celebrate the 350th anniversary of Saint Gobain, which was founded in 1665 to create the glass for the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles.

The team, led by Saint Gobain’s senior vice president sustainable habitat Peter Hindle MBE, left the Saint Gobain Innovation Centre in London to the Saint-Gobain Archives in Blois, France from July 10th to 13th.

The ride aims to raise money for the Saint-Gobain Together Partnership, which this year is supporting Macmillan Cancer Support and the Irish Cancer Society.
