Sam’s mammoth 100-mile cycle challenge

The pandemic has meant many mass participation sport events have had to be postponed or cancelled, meaning a loss of much needed income for many charities.

While Prudential RideLondon 2020 is one of those events to be cancelled, that hasn’t deterred our wonderful supporter Sam, who will be taking on a mammoth challenge and cycling 100 miles virtually on Sunday 16 August to support our work.

In his own words:

”I had several challenges set for 2020 including London to Brighton bike ride (Which I completed in my own way in the end) as well as the Castle to Coast Triathlon, but all are cancelled or delayed until next year as is the Prudential RideLondon 100 mile challenge. However I WILL complete the PRL course, indoors on Zwift with all the hills and much, much more sweat!! This will be my longest and most challenging day in the saddle to date; the awesome Prudential Ride London – Surrey 100. That’s 100 miles of Surrey’s most challenging terrain with Climbs up Leith Hill and Box Hill….. I CAN FEEL MY QUADS SCREAMING ALREADY!”

With just two weeks to go, we’re wishing Sam the best of luck!
