Charity Challenge

Prudential RideLondon 2016


We are very proud of the role Prudential RideLondon plays in encouraging people to get on their bikes and take on a personal challenge or challenge themselves in aid of a cause close to their heart.

PRL Challenge

For 2016 we partnered with three fantastic charities - Greenhouse Sports, Teach First and the Invictus Games Foundation. We challenged a group of young people from disadvantaged communities and wounded and injured service personnel to ride in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 or new 46-mile event.

Our Support

We provided them with practical support to take on the event (in the form of new bikes and helmets and training events) and tangible support to help them take on their challenges beyond Prudential RideLondon (employability support, soft skills training etc).
