On Sunday the 29th July the Prudential RideLondon took place for the third year running. This year The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) had two fantastic teams of cyclists taking part in the festival in support of our research into a cure for Parkinson’s.

The cycle challenge started at 5.45am in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford and saw our first team of cyclists pedal the 100 mile route through the capital on closed roads and into the beautiful Surrey countryside. The tough, leg-testing climbs and route were made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics.

Our second team of cyclists began at 9am taking on the 46 mile route, which follows the Prudential 100 for the first 27miles past some of London’s iconic landmarks before taking a new two mile route which then links up with the last 17 miles of the 100 race to finish together on The Mall.

CPT would like to say a huge well done and thank you to all our brilliant cyclists who took part and conquered the two spectacular routes through the tough wind and rain! We are so grateful for your support and incredible fundraising efforts.
