Embrace Child Victims Of Crime are looking for keen cyclists to join Team Embrace in the 2019 Prudential Ride London- Surrey 100 Event on Sunday 4 August.
Embrace Child Victims of Crime (CVOC) is a national children’s charity solely focused on delivering emotional, practical and cheer-up support to children and young people, and immediate families, affected by serious crime including homicide in all its forms, violent crime and sexual abuse.
The route of the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 offers a perfect, traffic-free ride for a range of cycling abilities. Everyone can enjoy a challenging day in the saddle pedalling through the roads of London and Surrey.
Starting from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London, cyclists head past Canary Wharf and through the City of London before cycling west along Piccadilly and the A4 at Hammersmith. Riders first cross the River Thames at Chiswick and pass through Richmond Park and the heart of Kingston-upon-Thames, before crossing Hampton Court Bridge along the route made famous by both the road race and time-trial events during the London 2012 Olympic Games.
There’s plenty of stunning Surrey countryside on offer as cyclists head south past Newlands Corner, Abinger Hammer and Holmbury St Mary before tackling the biggest ascent on the route at Leith Hill. After a well-earned descent towards Dorking, it’s onto the next challenge: the world-famous zig-zags of Box Hill.
After heading north through Leatherhead, Oxshott and Esher the route takes riders back into London through Kingston and over Putney Bridge to cross the River Thames for a final time. The route then follows the Embankment all the way alongside the Thames, heading past some of London’s most famous landmarks as it makes its way across Parliament Square and up Whitehall. The route then swings left at Trafalgar Square, with riders streaming under Admiralty Arch before a spectacular finish on The Mall.
Our charity bonded places are available on a first come, first served basis on the understanding that each cyclists will raise a minimum of £350 in return for the place plus a £25 registration fee.
For everyone who secures a place on our team, you will receive a branded team jersey and have dedicated fundraising officer on hand to answer any queries, ensuring a stress free race day.
