A true legacy of the 2012 Games
Developed by the Mayor of London and his agencies in 2013, Prudential RideLondon is a world-class festival of cycling. The fifth edition will take place over the weekend of 28-30 July 2017.
This flagship event is part of the Mayor and TfL’s cycling programme. Prudential RideLondon provides a fantastic platform to help fulfil The Mayor and TfL’s goal of encouraging more people to cycle more safely, more often. TfL anticipates tens of thousands of spectators and participants every year will take up regular cycling after each event. This will be achieved by creating massive engagement with participants, spectators and media alike.
Taking a cue from the London Marathon, amateur cyclists also participate in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 – a 100-mile challenge on the same closed roads as the professionals, with the added incentive of raising money for good causes and it was this event that four cyclists undertook to raise funds for DFSG.
A very big thanks for their endurance, skill and generosity to Jamie Simmons, Jamie Lynch of southeastmountainbiking.co.uk/, and Neil MvKee who together raised an amazing £1435 for the DFSG. Thank you!
