If you work in a large office, why not use their internal communications to help you out. Is there an office newsletter or monthly email that is sent to all your colleagues? get your JustGiving page featured and share your story about why you're riding London to Brighton Bike Ride. This will help take the pressure off you having to ask your colleagues for donations.
