The Donna Louise is looking for supporters to take part in this summer’s RIDE LONDON cycling challenge.
On Sunday 4th August you can take to the streets of London and Surrey and take part in one of country’s largest bike rides - Prudential Ride London-Surrey.
Zoë Gregory, Event Manager at The Donna Louise, explained; “Places are very sought after and we’re lucky to have two places in the 100-mile challenge and five places in the 46-mile challenge.
“The route is traffic free and suits a range of cycling abilities. You’ll start at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London, then take in some of the sites throughout the city, including Canary Wharf, Piccadilly and Richmond Park before heading out of London towards Hampton Court and on into Surrey.
“It promises to be a great event and we’re really pleased to have secured these places. We’re now looking for keen cyclists to take on the challenge and raise money for the children and young people, with life-limiting conditions, who rely on The Donna Louise.”
After taking in the Surrey countryside riders will head back into London, taking in the Thames along the Embankment, before a grand finish on The Mall.
This is the first time that The Donna Louise has secured places in this prominent cycling event, and the hospice is now looking for cyclists to take on the challenge. Registration is £50, with an expectation that participants will raise at least £250 sponsorship.
