Participants could cycle as many or as few miles as they wanted, either virtually on a static bike or out on the road.
Vistry Partnerships London, located in Broadway across the road from Mind, smashed its target of £500 by raising more than £3,000.
The company raised more than £30,000 collectively.
Vistry Partnerships London managing director Ray Toft said: “This year has been particularly challenging to mental health, both in the workplace and at home, and as we enter a second national lockdown it’s more important than ever that we do what we can to help support charities like Mind (to) keep providing outstanding services.”
