Prudential Ridelondon raises record-breaking £12 million for charity

Published on : Wednesday, January 20, 2016

London & PartnersThe world’s greatest festival of cycling, held for the first time in 2013, has now raised more than £29 million for charity in just three years. At the inaugural event, 16,000 riders raised more than £7 million and in 2014 the 20,709 finishers battled through heavy rain and wind on a shortened route to break the £10 million barrier.

 

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson MP, said: “Prudential RideLondon is not just the greatest mass-participation cycling event in the world, it’s also a hugely successful charity weekend that raises millions of pounds for good causes. I congratulate everyone who helped to make it another record-breaking year and I look forward to seeing cyclists of all ages and abilities take to the capital’s streets again this year.”

 
Macmillan Cancer Support was one of many charities that raised six-figure sums and is already hard at work planning its fundraising for the 2016 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100.

 

Liz Taylor-Hemming, Challenge Events Programme Manager at Macmillan Cancer Support, said: “2015 saw the highest number of Macmillan riders in the Prudential RideLondon to date. We are extremely grateful to our 570 Team Macmillan riders who between them raised over £450,000. This is a fantastic total which will be used by Macmillan to provide services for people affected by cancer so that nobody has to face cancer alone.”
Event Director Hugh Brasher said: “After just three years, Prudential RideLondon is firmly established as one of the most successful fundraising sports events in the world. We thank all the riders for their fundraising work and look forward to breaking more records in 2016.”
