Prudential RideLondon raises £12 million for charity

The organisers of Prudential RideLondon have announced that cyclists have raised more than £41 million for charity over the first four years of the world’s greatest festival of cycling.

This year riders in the festival raised more than £12 million for charity, equalling the record set in 2015.

A total of 26,770 riders completed the 2016 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100.

A further 2,724 riders finished the new 46-mile challenge, held for the first time this year.

Richard Walsh, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Localities and Community Wellbeing, said: “This tremendous sum raised for good causes across the country underlines the legacy of the Prudential RideLondon events, which we’re looking forward to welcoming to Surrey again next summer. It takes the total raised since the inaugural event in 2013 to more than £41 million and I’d like to thank all the riders who have contributed to this huge amount for their amazing fundraising efforts.”
