Join Breakthrough Breast Cancer to join over 20,000 cyclists taking part in the RideLondon-Surrey 100

The RideLondon-Surrey 100 is taking place on the 4th of August and will be covering 100 miles (160 km) along closed roads from central London all the way out to Surrey.

Needless to say, it’s going to be pretty good fun! With over 20,000 people taking part, it’s also going to be the UK’s biggest cycling event.

The ballot has already ended but you can still secure a place if you fundraise with Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

Details are on the website.

Alternatively, if you were lucky enough to secure a place through the ballot then Breakthrough invite you to join their team.

By joining up you’ll also receive:

  • A fundraising pack full of hints, tips and inspiration
  • A pink t-shirt to wear during your fundraising and on your cycle
  • Full support from the Active Events Team
  • Additional fundraising materials on request
  • Support on the day – plenty of cheerers to give you lots of pedalling power

This is the first Olympic legacy event being backed by the government and with over 60,000 applicants, it’s clearly proved very popular.

To take part, just take a look at the Breakthrough Breast Cancer website which has contact details and everything else you could need:

    Doesn’t the British Heart Foundation London to Brighton Ride have 27,000 people taking part making it the biggest UK cycling event?

    Hey well done, I liked your contribution to the Metro this morning – it was very interesting to hear your point of view, so thanks! I liked you calling the government’s £62m small change or pocket money or something…. which is what it is! That really cheered me up – having to commute in on the tube today.

    I am hoping to do the RideLondon 100 this year… am waiting for my letter. It was great that the event made the front page of the Evening Standard tonight.

      Thanks k8 pleased you enjoyed and I was happy to give the figure some context by comparing to 30m it costs on average for a mile of new motorway.

    I was one of many who was did not get a place in the ballot and would find it hard to raise the money for a charity place . You can only ask people so many times for something that is your hobbie for money .

      We’re in :) Applied for a charity place and got a phone call within 5 mins, same for me girlfriend and fine to raise on a joint account. I thought it would be massively oversubscribed for charity places too so if you are thinking about it, do it!

      Looking forward to it, have done other rides/runs before and don’t think this target should be too much of a problem.
