"Famous Five's" cycle adventure for Treloar's
Five intrepid riders took to the road at the end of July for the 2017 Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100. Despite the bad weather in the run up to the event, the skies were clear and the roads mercifully dry as some 24,000 riders started the Ride100, the first wave rolling out of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park at 05:45.
Team Treloar’s was well represented by Ian, James, Katie, Lee and Rudi who all completed the route in between 6-8 hours. There were quite a few sore legs on Monday after the 100mile journey, which includes the two highest peaks in Surrey at Leith Hill and Box Hill. The route follows the path of the course established at the 2012 Olympics and is part of the “London Classics Series” which includes the London Marathon and Swim Serpentine – definitely one for the bucket list!
Between them, they are on track to raise an amazing £3,000 for the children and young people at Treloar’s. We are very grateful for their hard work and support. We have places in this and other exciting events so why not challenge yourself for 2018 and help a great cause at the same time? Have a look at the website for more information and get on your bike!.
