13 million raised Prudential RideLondon 2018

Posted on in Cycles News, Outdoor News

Prudential RideLondon  RideLondon

A record £13 million raised for charity. 

This year's RideLondon event has beaten the 2017 record of £12.75 million and has brought the total money raised for charity in the first six years of the world's greatest festival of cycling to more than £66 million.

Prudential RideLondon was created by the Mayor of London and agencies in 2013, growing to become the world's greatest festival of cycling. The event is managed by the London & Surrey Cycling Partnership (LSCP), a partnership between London Marathon Events Limited and SweetSpot Group Limited.

This event sits within the Mayor's and TfL's cycling programme.

Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, said:

"I'd like to pay tribute to every cyclist who helped raise this record-breaking amount of money for charity at 2018 Prudential RideLondon. Their efforts will help some fantastic charities make a real difference to people's lives".

The first launch of Prudential RideLondon in 2013 saw 16,000 riders raise more than £7 million, with the following years seeing a significant increase in the number of cyclists and the money raised. 2014 saw 20,709 cyclists that broke the £10 million barrier, 2015 saw 25,564 finishers raising more than £12 million and setting a new fundraising record for a cycling event in Europe. 2018, may have been the hardest year yet as riders fought through the strong winds and heavy rain but came out champions raising a record £13 million.

£300,000 was raised for Charity of the Year, Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) Children's Charity by a team of more than 450 riders.

Macmillan Cancer Support raised more than £500,000, with Alzheimer's Society, British Heart Foundation and Prostate Cancer UK among the many other charities that raised six figure sums.

This year's event has been impressive and a milestone in cycling, but what will 2019 bring to the table?

The 2019 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 takes place on Sunday 4th of August!

Registration is now open.

Registration closes on Friday 4th of January 2019.
