Ride London 100
Sunday 4 August 2013
We are delighted to have two places to offer for people to take part in Ride London 100 2013.
Lead out the greats when you take on a cycling challenge like no other through the closed roads of London and the Surrey Hills next summer. Just hours before the world’s top cyclists race the RideLondon Classic, 20,000 cyclists will have the chance to cycle a modified version of the London 2012 Olympic Road Race. This new event offers a unique opportunity to become part of cycling history. Celebrating the legacy for cycling created by London 2012. RideLondon100 will start in the new Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then follow the closed roads through the capital and onto Surrey’s stunning country roads and hills. With leg-testing climbs and a route recently made famous by the world’s best cyclists, this promises to be truly spectacular event for all involved.
The RideLondon 100 is a perfect ride for club & recreational cyclists. Slower cyclists can enjoy a challenging ride while faster riders will relish the opportunity to pit themselves against the country’s top amateurs. As well as an opportunity to take on a personal challenge in completing the course, participants’ involvement will benefit good causes - RideLondon aims to be the largest charity fund-raising cycle race in the world.
If you are interested in taking one of these places, please contact wendy.
