Get on your bike – or scooter, skateboard, trike, balance bike, tandem, penny farthing, unicycle, roller skates – to help save the UK’s charities!
The eighth edition of Prudential RideLondon 100 was due to take place on the weekend of 15 and 16 August 2020 and feature four mass participation events: the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 19, 46 and 100 sportives, plus Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle: the free event that invites cyclists of all ages and abilities to pedal round eight miles of traffic-free roads in central London.
While the Covid-19 pandemic means the festival can’t go ahead as planned this year, we want to keep the wheels moving and celebrate the event weekend by encouraging even more people to get on their bikes and explore new ways of travelling and exercising in a socially distanced world – and help save the UK’s charities in the process.
My Prudential RideLondon is building on the success of The 2.6 Challenge – created following the postponement of the London Marathon – which became the biggest collective fundraising effort in the world, raising more than £11 million and involving nearly 4,000 charities.
How it works
My Prudential RideLondon is free to enter – all you need to do is follow some simple steps to personalise your experience.
Visit myridelondon.co.uk to register and choose your distance. Just before the event weekend of 15 and 16 August, you’ll be able to download the My Prudential RideLondon app – from here you can track and log your ride.
You are invited to complete one (or more!) of four challenges over the weekend: 19 miles for riders in search of a challenge, 46 miles for riders who want to push the boundaries, a more taxing 100 miles for those who want to go all-out or the distance of your choice at My Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle. (If you are under 18, please check age restrictions below for the 19, 46 and 100-mile events.)
Once you’ve registered and chosen your challenge you’ll be able to set up your fundraising page so you can let people know what you’re doing, what charity you’re supporting and how they can sponsor you – and encourage them to take part too! We recommend using the official fundraising partner Virgin Money Giving – it’s 100 per cent not for profit, so more money goes directly to your chosen charity. You can also spread the word on social media by using the hashtag #MyPRL whenever you post about the event.

Celebrating the legacy for cycling created by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 starts in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then follows a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside. With leg-testing climbs and a route made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics, it’s a truly spectacular event for all involved.
If you were unable to apply to a ballot place, panic not! DSA have some charity places for this amazing event. All we ask of our cyclists is that you pay a £30 registration fee and pledge to raise a minimum of £400 in sponsorship.
