Beginning at the Queen Elizabeth II Olympic Park, the route passes through central London, taking in the sights of the capital. It then heads out to scenic Surrey countryside and some testing climbs, before coming back into London to finish in front of Buckingham Palace.
We are asking every Palace for Life rider to pledge to raise £600 or more. The funds you raise will help change the lives of young south Londoners who need our help the most.
Palace for Life Foundation has been working with the South London community for over 25 years. We exist to leverage the power of football and the Crystal Palace FC brand to change the lives of young people across South London, particularly the most hard-to-reach and hard-to-help. We work with over 13,000 people each year, inspiring them to find a better path and to lead a healthier life. We cover a broad spectrum, from football sessions for young people with a disability, to delivering engaging assemblies and workshops in local schools and colleges. Targeting young people in areas of deprivation, we offer free sessions in sport and other activities, alongside pastoral support, to instil positive values and help prepare our participants for a better life. We have strong connections within the local community and businesses and run programmes designed to equip young people with the skills they need to start thinking about their future careers. We believe that everyone matters, irrespective of their background and beliefs, and by giving extra support to the most vulnerable, we will help create a better community and society.
