Prudential RideLondon 100 - 2013

Good friends Cliff, Colin and I rode in the first Ride London event:

Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100

Over 25,000 amateur cyclists start in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then cycle through the capital and onto Surrey's country roads and the Surrey Hills before a finish on The Mall in central London.

We were lucky enough to get a place in the first event back in 2013 where oer 16,000 riders took part.

I rode the 100 miles in an incredible 4 hours 37 mins and 52 seconds and came in just over a minute and a half behind British athlete and double olympic gold medalist James Cracknell (the first celebrity rider over the line).
Out of over 16,000 riders, we were in the top 760 and 3 and half hours quicker than (then Mayor of London and now Prime Minister) Boris Johnson!
