About MyRide London 15th & 16th August 2020
The Prudential RideLondon first took place in 2013 as a legacy event from the London 2012 Olympics. In its first seven editions, it has become the world’s greatest festival of cycling, with 100,000 riders of all ages and abilities participating in seven different events on traffic-free roads in London and Surrey. It has inspired hundreds of thousands of people to take up cycling or cycle more often and a total of more than £77 million has been raised for thousands of charities.
We can’t all ride together on the roads of London on 15th and 16th August 2020. But we can unite in a new way to help save the UK’s charities. My Prudential RideLondon is your chance to get on your bike – or scooter, skateboard, trike, tandem, penny farthing, roller skates, unicycle – and take part in the world’s greatest festival of cycling, wherever you live and with whoever you like – family, friends or by yourself. It’s your ride, your way and do it for HospiceCare.
How it Works:
My Prudential RideLondon includes four challenges for all ages and abilities that participants can do on a route of their choice, wherever they are in the world, on either 15 or 16 August:
My Prudential RideLondon a 100-mile ride
My Prudential RideLondon a 46-mile ride
My Prudential RideLondon a 19-mile ride
My Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle: An event that allows you to set your own challenge (starting from 1km) on the wheels of your choice: bikes, push scooters, skateboards, trikes, balance bikes, roller skates, wheelchairs or anything that is self-propelled (e-bikes are fine too).
How much does it cost?

All we ask is that you raise a minimum sponsorship of £25 which provides an hour of our specialist Hospice at Home services to someone in your local community
