Saddle Up And Fight Meningitis

Saddle Up And Fight Meningitis

Meningitis Now are looking for cyclists to join their team and take on the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Challenge. Cyclists of all abilities are invited to follow in the tracks of London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic cycling greats to fight meningitis by saddling up for the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100. Developed by Mayor of London Boris Johnson and co. to celebrate the Games’ legacy, the two-day festival runs Saturday-Sunday, August 1-2.

Imagine cycling through London traffic free. Well the centrepiece, RideLondon-Surrey 100, is a 100-mile ride through closed capital and Surrey streets, so picture cycling The Mall with only historical landmarks and waving well-wishers either side. The third-annual challenge starts at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, east London, heads past Canary Wharf, crosses the Thames at Chiswick, goes through Richmond Park and crosses Hampton Court Bridge along London 2012’s famous road and time trial routes. Riders enter Surrey with its stunning countryside, leg-testing climbs and world-famous Box Hill zig zags, before returning to London, alongside the Thames and spectacularly finishing on The Mall.RideLondon 2
