SSgt Pople took part in the London Ride 100 on 8 August 2014 which saw 25,000 amateur cyclists take on a 100 mile cycling challenge like no other through London and Surrey on a similar route to that of the London 2012 Olympic Road Cycling Races. The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 started at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then travel through the capital and onto Surrey’s stunning country roads and through the Surrey Hills before a spectacular finish on The Mall in central London.
As well as an opportunity to take on a personal challenge in completing the ride, participants’ involvement will benefit good causes with thousands riding for charity. A record-breaking £10 million+ was raised for charity in 2014.
