Stem4

Prudential RideLondon 2017

  • On Sunday 30th July 2017 a team of 9 intrepid cyclists took on the much anticipated RideLondon annual cycling challenge to raise funds for stem4. This event sees more than 26,000 amateur cyclists cycle through London and Surrey on a similar route to that of the London 2012 Olympic Road Cycling Races. Starting in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then travelling through the capital and into Surrey, the ride finishes on The Mall in central London.

 

  • We stationed our stem4 stand in Raynes Park, tracking our riders with the useful RideLondon app, enjoying the upbeat atmosphere and cheering all riders on in the sunshine and rain.

 

  • Our cyclists showed real grit and determination to all complete the course in times ranging from 4h54 to 7h20 – even the 4 punctures one of our cyclists faced did not deter him! Whilst donations are still coming in, it looks like our team has raised upwards of £8,000 for the charity, which really will help stem4 support teenage mental health.

 

  • We have RideLondon places for next year, so if you fancy taking on a personal challenge in 2018 whilst raising money for stem4, then please email fundraising@stem4.org.uk for further details.
