MyRideLondon – choose your own cycling challenge
RideLondon is cancelled but you can take part in my RideLondon and set up your own event
We’re inviting you, your family and friends, to get on your bike – or scooter, skateboard, trike, tandem, penny farthing, unicycle – to fundraise for Berkshire MS Therapy Centre as part of a campaign to help save the UK’s charities.
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on charities, with the UK charity sector facing an estimated £11 billion shortfall in funding.
It’s also meant thousands of events across the country have been cancelled, including Prudential RideLondon. While it can’t go ahead as planned this year, we are keeping the wheels moving and celebrating the festival weekend of 15 and 16 August with a virtual event: My Prudential RideLondon.
Its aim is to inspire and engage everyone, of all ages and abilities, to get on their bikes, scooters, skateboards, trikes, tandems, penny farthings, unicycles – in fact any form of wheeled transport! – to raise much-needed funds for their favourite charities.
How to sign up
We’d love you to be a part of it – just follow these four simple steps:
1. Register: visit www.myridelondon.co.uk and select your challenge. There are three cycling distances to choose from, or you can invent your own My FreeCycle wheeled challenge of any length.
2. Fundraise: set up your fundraising page and let people know you’re supporting us so they can sponsor you.
3. Participate: set your wheels in motion and complete your challenge anywhere, at any time, over the weekend of 15 and 16 of August!
4. Nominate: encourage your family and friends to take part and help save the UK’s charities. Spread the word on social media too by using the hashtag #MyPRL when posting about the event.
You’ll find more information, ideas and inspiration, as well as advice on staying safe and cycling responsibly on the road, at myridelondon.co.uk.
