We’ve helped bring some of Europe’s top cyclists to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park by sponsoring two events at a historic cycling meet.

Condor Good Friday Racing took place on 19th April at Lee Valley VeloPark, right next to our Chobham Manor development. Europe’s best sprint racers have competed against each other on Good Friday since 1903 and this year we gave organisers Full Gas Cycling a boost with £1,500 in sponsorship.

As well as the programme of racing, the event also included a range of family activities designed to make the most of Lee Valley VeloPark and give local residents a chance to experience both the iconic venue and top-level cycling.

Michael O’Leary, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East London, said: “We’re so lucky to be right on the doorstep of Lee Valley VeloPark and the other fantastic venues within Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The team at Full Gas Cycling have made a great effort to turn the Good Friday racing event into a day out for families and we were delighted to sponsor two races this year. It was lovely to see so many people enjoying themselves and we’re already looking forward to next year.”
