Are you mad about cycling? Or do you have a friend who likes nothing better to talk about their new bike widget? We still have a few places left in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 bike ride and one of them could be yours (or your mates!).
This fantastic route starts in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then follows a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside. With leg-testing climbs 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.
If you are interested and can raise sponsorship to help transform the lives of homeless people, get in touch with Elise Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 020 8694 5797.
Henry tells us why he cycled for the 999 Club last year
Henry wanted to take his fitness to a higher level (from a low base, so Henry claimed!). RideLondon-Surrey 100 was perfect: a distance long enough to require a few months’ weekend training, with a route of traffic-free roads lined by enthusiastic water bottle filling stations. He raised £3,000 for the 999 Club.
“I have seen at close hand the isolation and hopelessness that city living can bring to some people. The 999 Club provides immediate comfort and can direct its visitors to where additional help can be found. For the lucky ones, the 999 Club is the tipping point from despair to hope and happiness. Except it is not luck, it is the hard work of the 999 Club volunteers.”
