Sunday 31st July marked one of the biggest days in the cycling enthusiasts calendar as 27,000 amateur cyclists took to the road for this years Prudential Ride 100. The 100 mile charity ride saw participants starting from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, travelling through the capital and onto Surrey’s stunning country roads, through the Surrey Hills before a spectacular finish at The Mall in central London.
Taking part in this years race and raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support was Richard Stovold, Director of Seymours Burpham, Jamie Hynes and David Driscoll, Directors of Seymours Dorking.
Richard, who took part in the 2015 Prudential Ride 100 and completed this years race with a personal best of 5 hours and 45 minutes comments, “It was great to see such a fantastic turn out from both participants and spectators, we were extremely lucky with the weather and the race was very well organised. Despite a very early 4:30AM wake up call, Ride 100 was an amazing opportunity to take in so many of the beautiful sights surrounding Surrey and London, whilst raising money for a worthwhile cause. I would like to thank everybody who has sponsored myself, Jamie and David and we are overwhelmed by people’s generosity. We’re delighted that we have been able to exceed our fundraising targets and couldn't have done this without the support of our family, friends and customers.”
