We want to thank our RideLondon fundraisers

RideLondon is the largest festival of cycling in the world, with 100,000 people taking part in various events over one weekend in London.

70-year-old Peter Hayes was one of those who rode 100 miles through the capital and Surrey along the route of the London 2012 Olympic road cycling races.

He has pledged for the money he raised to go to Chipstead Lake care home in Kent.

Mr Hayes’s wife lived with MS, a condition that affects many of the residents at the home.

Speaking before the event, Mr Hayes said: ‘Multiple sclerosis has had a great impact on my life as a carer, so the RideLondon event will be a tough but satisfying challenge.’

Our fastest rider was Simon Madgwick, who completed the course in a rapid 4 hours 50 minutes.

‘Everyone did very well despite the hot weather,’ said Jasmine Monk, our events officer.

We would like to thank the team who cycled for us: Mark Elliott, Carey Farrell, Nick Glover, Peter Hayes, Sue Kent, Simon Kent, Simon Madgwick, Andrea Mcmullan, Ian Robinson, Peter Robinson, Daniel Rootes and Gus Vieira.
