Blog New virtual cycling challenge #MyPRL My Prudential RideLondon When: 15-16th August 2020 Cost: Free to sign up Fundraising target: You are free to raise as much as you'd like! Get on your bike – or scooter, skateboard, tandem, penny farthing, trike, unicycle – and join the free My Prudential RideLondon event to help save the UK's charities. The Covid-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect on the UK’s charities, with the cancellation of thousands of fundraising events and the loss of billions in income. Celebrating cycling The eighth edition of Prudential RideLondon was due to take place on 15 and 16 August 2020, and while the festival can’t go ahead as planned, we want to keep the wheels moving and celebrate the event weekend by encouraging people to get on their bikes – or any other non-motorised wheeled transport! – and help save the UK’s charities in the process. My Prudential RideLondon is building on the success of The 2.6 Challenge – created following the postponement of the London Marathon – which became the biggest collective fundraising effort in the world, raising more than £11 million and involving nearly 4,000 charities. Whatever your age or ability, you can join in – wherever you live in the UK and with whoever you like – family, friends or by yourself.
