Ride London-Surrey 100 Cycle 2018
Want to take part in the iconic Ride London – the only closed road cycle ride through the heart of the capital? We thought so!
Dean Dovey, who cycled for the Mary Ann Evans Hospice in 2017 said: “Its a very well organised and supported sportive and a great route for all levels of participants. Would recommend people to try it as the support from the public is over whelming and certainly gives you a huge lift!”
The Ride London-Surrey starts in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, before hitting the stunning countryside and leg-testing climbs of the Surrey hills. This 100-mile route, made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics, finishing on the Mall in front of thousands of spectators, is a truly spectacular event for all involved.
The Mary Ann Evans Hospice has 2 charity places available for this exciting event on Sunday 29th July 2018. By accepting a charity place you’ll be committing to raise a minimum of £500 in sponsorship, of which £225 covers your entry fee and £275 comes straight to the hospice. Of course, if you are able to raise funds above the minimum sponsorship target, the extra comes direct to the hospice.
You’ll receive a branded cycle jersey and will have the opportunity to attend a post-race celebration hosted by Hospice UK where you’ll receive a massage and a well-earned meal.
The public ballot entry system for the 2018 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 opens on Monday 7 August 2017 and closes on Friday 5 January 2018 or when 80,000 entries have been received, whichever is earlier. Everyone who applies in the ballot will be notified of the ballot results by post in February 2018. To enter the ballot, please visit: https://www.prudentialridelondon.co.uk/events/100/
If you were successful in gaining your own place through the ballot, you can still ride for the Mary Ann Evans Hospice with no minimum fundraising pledge – we just ask that you raise as much as you can! Please talk to us about ordering a branded cycle jersey.
