Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
On Sunday the 10th of August I will be riding 100 miles in the Prudential RideLondon- Surrey 100 to raise money for Woking Hospice. I have never taken on a challenge such as this. The training has just started and I think it is going to be taking up quite a bit of my time over the coming months. It is great to be raising money for a local charity who provide such a fantastic service to those who need it!
The route starts at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London, heads past Canary Wharf and through the City of London before going west along Piccadilly and the A4 at Hammersmith. The route first crosses the River Thames at Chiswick and passes through Richmond Park and the heart of Kingston-upon-Thames, before crossing Hampton Court Bridge along the route made famous by both the road race and time-trial events during the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The route then heads into the Surrey countryside and heads south past Newlands Corner, Abinger Hammer and Holmbury St Mary before tackling the biggest ascent on the route at Leith Hill. After a well-earned descent towards Dorking, it's onto the next challenge: the world-famous zig-zags of Box Hill.
After heading north through Leatherhead, Oxshott and Esher the route heads back into London through Kingston and over Putney Bridge to cross the River Thames for a final time. The route then follows the Embankment all the way alongside the Thames, heading past some of London’s most famous landmarks as it makes its way across Parliament Square and up Whitehall.
The route then swings left at Trafalgar Square, under Admiralty Arch before finishing on The Mall.
