This year the Prudential RideLondon is going virtual! The free event will take place on 15th – 23rd August and gives you the chance to take part in the world’s greatest festival of cycling, wherever you are – whilst raising vital funds to help keep Magpas Air Ambulance flying.
Magpas Air Ambulance, like many other charities, has been hugely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, particularly as many fundraising events have been either postponed or cancelled. However, rather than cancel their event, Prudential RideLondon are going virtual for the first time ever; offering participants of all ages the chance to tackle a range of distances based on the events included in the traditional Prudential RideLondon weekend. Whether you’re a seasoned cyclist pushing yourself to reach that 100 mile mark, or a family enjoying a 1km scooter ride together, it can be completed wherever you are and at any time between the 15th – 23rd August. Whatever you choose, get on your wheels for Magpas Air Ambulance and ultimately – have fun!
How it works:
Pick your challenge and choose your route – it can be wherever you are in the world, between the 15th or 23rd August.
