Of course when I say I “always find myself” I sound like some sort of crazed sleep walker who is always wondering around the streets of London at 5am. I can assure you that is not the case.
On Saturday 19th of June, when the weather has warmed up a little and it is not constantly pitch black, a 100km charity cycle ride is going to take place. The company behind it is ClassicTours and some of the proceeds will be donated to charity. As far as I know there is a limit of 300 cyclists and around 75 have already signed up. So if you want to take part you better be quick!
The amount you have to raise is fairly easy to achieve with a minimum of £175. As it is a 100km (62 miles) challenge you will need to do at least a little bit of training before hand not to tire out too early.
The route starts at 11pm from Crystal Palace and covers some very famous landmarks including: Tower Bridge, a deserted City of London and Buckingham Palace. It is a circular route so you finish at the starting point.
The route will be road based and the organisers will be providing route sign-posting and support.
