BDP has launched “Cycle for Jo”, a charity cycle ride, where employees from BDP studios all over the world will ride in relay teams between studio locations.

The ride, which starts on May 6 at BDP’s London office, has been organised in memory of murdered landscape architect Joanna Yeates, who worked at the practice’s Bristol office, and is part of a series of events marking BDP’s 50th anniversary.

More than 150 cyclists will take part in 12 different stages across the UK, Ireland, Holland and India, with the last team arriving back in London on May 25.

Donations can be made through and all money received will be split between three charities – Missing People, British Red Cross and the RSPCA, the last charity nominated by Jo’s family because of her love of animals.
