16 riders are preparing themselves for the annual 100 mile bike ride through London and Surrey
After our recent heatwave, our riders will be glad of a bit of cooler weather as on Sunday they will take on Prudential RideLondon. The event takes in a 100 mile course that will see 25,000 amateur cyclists tackle a challenge like no other. Making its way through London and Surrey, the route charts a similar course to that of the London 2012 Olympic road cycling races.
The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 will start in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, travelling through the Capital onto Surrey’s stunning country roads. Riders will then scale the county’s hilly terrain before a spectacular finish on The Mall in central London.
As well as an opportunity to take on a personal challenge in completing the ride, participants’ involvement will benefit good causes with thousands riding for charity. A record-breaking £12 million was raised for charity in 2016, bringing the total raised by riders to more than £66 million since 2013.
All of Team Racing Welfare’s riders have been training hard in preparation for Sunday and have raised nearly £4,000 so far, with more donations coming in all the time. Find out more about why they want to take on the challenge and how you can support them below.
