Flash Briefings
What: My Prudential RideLondon The first ever virtual edition of Prudential RideLondon – the world’s greatest festival of cycling – to celebrate cycling and raise funds to help save the UK’s charities. My Prudential RideLondon is an exciting, free event that will enable riders of all ages and abilities to cycle a range of distances, based on the events included in the traditional Prudential RideLondon weekend from wherever they are in  the world, have fun and raise crucial funds for their chosen charity. Hugh Brasher, Event Director of Prudential RideLondon, said: “After the disappointment of the cancellation of Prudential RideLondon, we were determined to create something special for our riders, partners and the hundreds of charities that rely on the event for vital income.” My Prudential RideLondon is building on the success of The 2.6 Challenge – created following the postponement of the London Marathon - which became the biggest collective fundraising effort in the world involving nearly 4,000 charities. Get on your bike – or scooter, skateboard, tandem, penny farthing, trike, unicycle – and join the free My Prudential RideLondon event to help save the UK's charities. There are four My Prudential RideLondon challenges to choose from: - Nineteen: My Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 19 (cycle only) is a 19-mile ride for modest riders in search of a challenge. - Forty Six: My Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46 (cycle only) is a 46-mile ride for riders who want to push the boundaries. - 100: My Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 (cycle only) is a 100-mile ride for riders who want to go all-out. - Freecycle: My Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle is for cyclists and riders of other non-motorised wheels who want to set their own distance of 1km or more.
