Alan completes the 100 mile cycle route for charity
Alan competed in the Prudential RideLondon 100 event in July. This annual festival of cycling was developed by the major of London as a legacy of the 2012 games and is part of TfL’s continuing efforts to bring London safer, well-connected cycle routes.
The 100 mile cycle ride sees amateurs experiencing professional cycling routes through London and Surrey with the added bonus of raising money for charity. Alans said, “this was the second time I had taken part and completed what is a fairly gruelling few hours in the saddle. The first time I rode in 2 August 2015 it rained heavily all day. I couldn’t believe it could happen again in late July, but the weather was unbelievably wet that day which was even more surprising given the heatwave we were experiencing in the Spring/Summer of 2018!”
Alan has raised an incredible £6,000 for good causes over the two events, saying “it was worthwhile and something I am proud of”. The money raised on this ride has been donated to Peace Hospice Care in Watford who provide expert hospice care, empowering patients to experience the best quality of life for those facing a life-limiting illness.
Well done Alan!
