Launched in the legacy of London 2012, the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 instantly became the biggest cycling event in the UK. Cycle the same route as the pros!

2019 will be the seventh year that riders set out from Olympic Park on their 100 mile journey along closed roads to a grandstand finish on The Mall, with testing climbs including Leith Hill and Box Hill on the way. This event is rising in popularity, so take part as soon as you can before it becomes too busy!

Located in the heart of Westminster, we’re one of London’s busiest homelessness centres, working in direct contact with vulnerable homeless rough sleepers all year round. Being a local organisation, we don’t have the overheads that others do, and can promise you that 91p in every £1 will be spent on helping homeless people. Running for us means you will be directly supporting the homeless people who need your help most, through our services which enable people to access housing, employment training, and professional support to overcome personal issues.

What support will we give you?
We’ll be sending you a high-quality cycling jersey, personalised with your name.
We can also help with advice on training and support to achieve your fundraising target.
On the day, we’ll be down there with bags of enthusiasm to help motivate you and cheer you on, meet you with refreshments once you’ve completed your cycle, and say a massive thank you!

What difference could you make?

  • £500 could enable a vulnerable homeless rough sleeper to have a course of specialist one-to-one mental health support sessions which will help them to positively cope with their problems and move forward. Considering that approximately two thirds of homeless people living on the streets have mental health problems which are often severely hindering their ability to move on from the streets, that is a massive contribution. As well as this it could fund 6 full initial assessments for newly homeless people, creating their action plans and giving them access to hot nutritious meals, showers, laundry and GP services
