Turn2us had a great day at the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey event yesterday, as we cheered on the four cyclists raising funds to help us in our fight against UK poverty.
Our first cyclist to the iconic finish on The Mall was Matt Phillips, an architect from Rochester in Kent, riding for the second time in this event. He managed to complete the 100 mile course in a fantastic time of 5 hours 31 minutes, beating his previous time by a few minutes.
Matt was closely followed by Simon Brasch, Turn2us Information Manager, who finished in 5 hours 39 minutes. Also riding for us were Geoff Coe, and his partner Inna Wearn who successfully completed the shorter 46 mile course.
Zena Carter, Head of Fundraising at Turn2us, commented: "All our cyclists did fantastically. We are tremendously proud of their achievement and really grateful for their support."
We are hugely thankful to everyone who completed the RideLondon-Surrey event for Turn2us. If you watched the event and were inspired, maybe you'd like to ride for Turn2us next year.
