A ‘Ride Around London’ is being held on Sunday September 30 to raise funds to promote sport in disadvantaged communities in the capital and Bristol.
Money raised from the event, organised by Access Sport, will fund an Olympic legacy programme.
Two routes, one of 60-miles, and a longer 115-mile route, will take in Olympic venues, including the Herne Hill Velodrome, Eton Dorney, and the Chilterns, and some of the route from the men’s and women’s Olympic road races.
Lizzie Armitstead, silver medalist in the women’s road race, said: “Ride Around London is a great way to challenge yourself while raising money for grass-roots sport in the communities that need it most.”
Rebecca Romero, gold medalist in the women’s individual pursuit in Beijing, is also backing the ride.
Feed stations, electronic timing, first aid, mechanical support, showers and changing facilities are provided.Optional transport and baggage transfer are offered.
