UK based Kenyan charity African Promise are looking for two people to fill their remaining RideLondon places which takes place at the end of July. They have decided to waive the minimum fundraising target of £750 and are instead asking participants to just raise as much as they can.

The ride starts in the now famous Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, home to the Velodrome and scene of so many iconic moments in that glorious summer for British sport nearly 5 years ago. It then follows a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital, the south west London suburbs and into Surrey’s stunning countryside. With leg-testing climbs, including both Box Hill and Leith Hill, and a route made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics, it’s a truly spectacular event for all involved. RideLondon-Surrey 100 finishes on The Mall in central London, shortly before 150 professional cyclists race in the RideLondon-Surrey Classic on a similar route.

Last year, Lunchbowl Network fundraiser April McDevitt raised £1,000 for children in Kibera by competing in the event.

The deadline for entries is 5pm this Friday 25th May so please let get in touch with the charity asap if you might be interested, or register your details via their website.
