Barton Willmore

Velocity offers us an unusual place to be part of content and commentary that marries the celebration of good placemaking, and benefits it can deliver for communities, with that of all things cycling. Two fields many of us at Barton Willmore, now Stantec, are passionate about, and keen to share!”

Jenni Montgomery, business development director

Be First

“Be First is supporting Velocity because we believe that increasing the number of journeys made by bike is critical to improving the quality of life in London and other cities. Government is still stuck in the past, announcing billions more for road building, but the development industry is much closer to the needs and aspirations of ordinary people and has the power and self-interest to bring about change. Velocity is a means to share best practice and encourage debate. It also offers an opportunity to make the connection between cycling as a sport and as a means of every day travel, using the former to promote the attitudes and investment which support the latter.”

Pat Hayes, managing director

Chris Dyson Architects

“Chris Dyson Architects value creativity, innovation and independent thought; spinning plates is what we do, encouraging spinning wheels is what Velocity does and does well… At the studio we actively encourage our staff to travel by bicycle everywhere they can, going to and from building sites and from home to work, most take up the cycle to work scheme and enjoy the freedom of spirit it provides them. We choose to partner with Velocity because of the magazines diversity of interests, like slices of life, rich, natural and thought provoking, much like a good building!”

Chris Dyson, founder

Club Peloton

“Club Peloton is a unique grant-making charity, bringing together business networking, fundraising and riding. Since our original Cycle to MIPIM in 2006, the world of cycling has changed dramatically with many of our riders gaining more connections and business opportunities from cycling together than any other method. We support Velocity as it covers the full breadth of cycling; from the enjoyment and innovations to the risks, all of which make it the sport we all love.”

Nick Hanmer, CEO


“As a private family-owned company, DAS has always had close links to sport and cycling in particular. Our business is heavily intertwined with the property and interiors world, with a strong emphasis on the companies and individuals in our local market. Working closely with Velocity, combined with our corporate sponsorship of the RRT Cycling Team, will enable us to target our corporate event activities to the right audience and hopefully bring mutually beneficial outcomes for all involved.”

Chris Grover, global sales director

Five at Heart

“Our passion has always been to creating amazing spaces and services for those who bike to work. Our mission is to make it easy for everyone to get back on their bike and revel in the freedom it offers, the childlike exuberance of riding, transforming the commute into something joyful. Collectively we have a real opportunity to make have a huge positive influence on bikes and the greater active space within the built environment and that's why we support Velocity.”

Mark Golder, managing director UK & EU

HB Reavis

“We put health and wellbeing at the heart of creating remarkable spaces and Velocity magazine's ethos of "people, property and bikes" aligns well with our vision.”

Chris Townend, development director

Pygott and Crone

“As a keen cyclist and proactive property consultancy it was a no brainer for Pygott and Crone to partner up with Velocity magazine. We love the fact that magazine focusses on the relationship that cycling has with property. It’s a privilege to support such a quality publication and partner up with similar like-minded businesses.”

Tim Downing, director


“Would you like to support a magazine that focuses on cycling and the construction industry? How could Symmetrys resist? The relationships we at Symmetrys have forged within the construction industry through cycling has formed part of the fabric of our growth. From the camaraderie of cycling with other likeminded people in the industry, we have created some amazing relationships that we would never have been able to have created had it not been for cycling.

Supporting Velocity provides Symmetrys with a platform to voice exactly this, and in turn shout about the huge benefits of cycling, not just for your health but also through meeting people in the industry. Velocity enables us to share our voice on the grand scale of topics that cycling and construction offers, be that road safety with the movement of HGV vehicles or to simply share your thoughts on transporting animals in pet baskets (maybe I should share my thoughts on this). Velocity offers an exciting future, not just for Symmetrys, but for all who love cycling and construction. Sit back or get involved with what proves to be an exciting new magazine.”

Christ Atkins, managing director


“A magazine about cycling and the development industry – could a publication possibly better align with Vectos? Our company ethos is built upon promoting and designing for active and sustainable travel, so naturally Velocity provides a great channel to discuss our research and views on planning for sustainable movement in our communities, the pioneering international research we’re undertaking on ideas and technologies and the psychology that helps to influence behaviour change, and to share the developments achieving these ambitions. Not to mention it provides a fantastic network of like-minded individuals and companies in the industry to develop these ideas with and of course get on the bike with.”

Mike Axon, managing director

Willmott Dixon

“We have so many people who cycle, it is both a great way to stay fit and also meet like-minded people who work in property. Velocity is unique in bringing our community of cyclists together and we want this growing magazine to further strengthen ties among property's cycling network.”
