Prudential RideLondon is the world’s greatest festival of cycling, developed by the Mayor of London and his agencies in partnership with Surrey County Council.  Over seven years it has inspired hundreds of thousands of people to take up cycling or cycle more often and has raised more than £77 million for thousands of charities.

The eighth edition was due to take place on the weekend of 15 and 16 August 2020 and feature four mass participation events: the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 19, 46 and 100 sportives, plus Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle.  While the Covid-19 pandemic means the festival can’t go ahead as planned this year, the team behind this iconic weekend aim to inspire and engage the UK population to get on their bikes, scooters, skateboards, trikes, tandems, penny farthings, roller skates, unicycles – in fact any form of self-propelled wheels! – over the original festival weekend to raise much-needed funds for their favourite charities.

We can’t all ride together on the roads of London and Surrey on 15 and 16 August, but we can unite in a new way to help save the UK’s charities. My Prudential Ride London is your chance to take part in the world’s greatest festival of cycling, wherever you live and with whoever you like – family, friends or by yourself. It’s your ride, your way, for the charity of your choice.  If you would like to join in and raise much needed funds for Heartburn Cancer UK then read on.  There is an event suitable for everyone.

All you have to do is click on the button below or visit myridelondon.co.uk to register and choose your distance. You can choose one (or more!) of four challenges over the weekend:

  • 100 miles for those who want to go all-out
  • The distance of your choice at My Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle.

Once you’ve registered and chosen your challenge you’ll be able to set up a fundraising page to let people know that you are raising funds for Heartburn Cancer UK, tell them what you’re doing, and how they can sponsor you – and perhaps you can encourage them to take part too!
