You did it! You completed RideLondon!

On Sunday 10th August, 35 riders for Action for Children took part in the 2014 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100.  The challenge started in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and follows a 100mile route out into Surrey's stunning country roads and hills, before returning to London to finish on The Mall, in front of the iconic Buckingham Palace.  Unfortuntely due to the weather conditions on Sunday, Leith Hill and Box Hill were closed for safety reasons.  All those who took part completed the course in under nine hours so it really was a challenge for all riders. 

After a very wet and windy cycle ride through London and Surrey, all our riders were happy to reach the finish line and so pleased with their achievements.  The weather forced the course to be shortened for safety reasons but all the Action for Children riders said what a fantastic experience taking part in RideLondon was and some even said they would do it again!

Of our 35 riders, six of those are Dell employees. 

If you’re inspired by the Commonwealth Games and RideLondon, Action for Children are accepting applications for the 2015 RideLondon event taking place on Sunday 3rd August 2015. Email Challenge@Actionforchildren.org.uk for more details.

Thank you to everyone who took part or supported the event in one way or another.
