Participants in this year’s Prudential RideLondon events have raised more than £13 million for charity to set a European record for a one-day cycling event, beating the previous year’s record of £12.75 million.
It brings the total raised for charity to more than £66 million in the first six years of the festival of cycling.
Denise Turner-Stewart, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Safety, Fire and Resilience, said: “I’m delighted this record-breaking sum has been raised for good causes and I’d like to thank all riders who played a part in achieving such a fantastic total. We’re now looking forward to welcoming Prudential RideLondon to Surrey again next year.”
