e’re inviting you, your family and friends, to get on your bike – or scooter, skateboard, trike, tandem, penny farthing, unicycle – to fundraise for North London Hospice by taking on the new national Prudential MyRideLondon challenge! This has been inspired by the famous Prudential RideLondon, the world’s greatest festival of cycling.
This new event (part of the Save the Charities campaign) is going to be taking place on 15th and 16th August– the original date of the now cancelled cycling festival. We hope it will inspire and engage our supporters, of all ages and abilities, to get on their bikes (or any form of non-motorised wheeled transport) – to raise much-needed funds for North London Hospice.
To take part, just follow these four simple steps:
- Register: visit myridelondon.co.uk and select your challenge. There are three cycling distances to choose from (100, 46 or 19 miles), or you can invent your own My FreeCycle wheeled challenge over 1km.
- Fundraise: set up your fundraising page on Virgin Money Giving or JustGiving, and let people know you’re supporting us so they can sponsor you.
- Participate: set your wheels in motion and complete your challenge anywhere, at any time, over the weekend of 15th and 16th August! There will even be a Prudential MyRideLondon app released the same week dedicated to the challenge with lots of exclusive features for cyclists and for fundraisers who have set up their page on Virgin Money Giving.
- Nominate: encourage your family and friends to take part and help save the UK’s charities.
Spread the word on social media too by using the hashtag #MyPRL when posting about the event.
You’ll find more information, ideas and inspiration, as well as advice on staying safe and cycling responsibly on the road, at myridelondon.co.uk. You can even download your own toolkit to help you promote your fundraising.
If you have any other questions, or need advice, you can also email our dedicated Challenge Fundraiser, Ryshel.
Your miles can make a difference, and will help us continue providing care and support to the most vulnerable in our community. Thank you and good luck!
