As the Prudential Ride London event has been cancelled this year the organisers have decided to organise a virtual event to get the nation cycling. In a similar style to the 2.6 Challenge they are hoping that people from throughout the country will take part from their own doorstep.
Cyclists of all ages and abilities are being encouraged to come together in this free to enter challenge on 15 and 16 August, the weekend of the world’s greatest festival of cycling.
In this socially distanced world, it’s also vitally important to encourage people to get on two wheels rather than use public transport. The My Prudential RideLondon campaign has been created to support this. All you need to do is register, choose your distance and follow some simple steps to personalise your experience.
Choose from one of four challenges for all ages and abilities, which you can do on a route of your choice, wherever you are in the world, on 15 or 16 August:
• My Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100: 100-mile ride
• My Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46: 46-mile ride
• My Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 19: 19-mile ride
• My Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle: An event that allows you to set your own challenge (minimum distance 1km) on the wheels of your choice: bikes, scooters, skateboards, trikes, balance bikes, roller skates, wheelchairs or anything that is self-propelled (e-bikes are fine too)
To register, simply sign up NOW and choose your challenge. Just before the event weekend of 15 and 16 August, you’ll be able to download the My Prudential RideLondon app – from here you can track, share and log your ride: www.myridelondon.co.uk
The main thing is to get active, have fun and fundraise to help save the UK’s charities…
