Prudential Ride London

We are delighted that the Will Houghton Foundation has been successful in the charity ballot for RideLondon and been awarded eight charity places each year for the next three years.

The ride is over the weekend of the 28-29th July 2018 and covers 100 miles over closed roads in London and across Surrey. We will start at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, cross the Thames at Chiswick and Hampton Court and on to Leith Hill (the steepest on the course) and the famous Box Hill zig-zags. The route returns to London over Putney Bridge, follows the Embankment to Trafalgar Square with the finish on the Mall.

The first year’s team will be made up of family and Will’s cycle coach Scott Holmes, his wife Helen and son Greg. We hope some of you will be able to join us in future years.

We look forward to an epic ride and raising funds to allow us to help more young people reach their potential.
