Ride London-Surrey 100 with Unicef and I
Now in its fifth year, The Prudential London-Surrey 100 is arguably one of the greatest cycling legacies of the London Olympics. Taking place entirely on closed roads, the route goes past some of London’s most well known monuments and out into the Surrey hills for a loop that includes a summit of Box Hill, just like in the Olympic road race.
I’ve always thought it sounds like a whole lot of fun but it’s fiendishly difficult to secure a place on the ride, with a ballot system in place to ensure fairness. But much like the London Marathon that operates in a similar way it can be possible to secure a charity place, meaning you not only get to ride but can also help raise much needed funds for one of the charity partners.
This year I’ve partnered with UNICEF and will be raising money through my Just Giving page and any donations, however small would be really grateful, so please don’t feel shy about donating a pound, I really, really appreciate every penny.
Or even better, how about actually joining me on the ride? UNICEF have 243 charity places to fill, so why not cycle for charity and make the day even greater? You can register for the ride for just £30.
Why not grab a place then tweet at me to let me know so we can try and meet up and roll together?
UNICEF will be there every step of the way to help you with your training and fundraising leading up to the event and they’ll also be there on race day to cheer you on!
You can register for the race today for just £30 then all riders are asked to raise £600, which could help Unicef provide warm winter clothes for 17 children displaced or affected by the conflict in Syria.
