Ride London 2020 has gone virtual!
We can’t all ride together on the roads of London and Surrey on 15 and 16 August. But we can unite in a new way to help save the UK’s charities including Sands. My Prudential RideLondon is your chance to get on your bike – or scooter, skateboard, trike, tandem, penny farthing, roller skates, unicycle – and take part in the world’s greatest festival of cycling, wherever you live and with whoever you like – family, friends or by yourself.
It’s your ride, your way for Sands.
My Prudential RideLondon is free to enter – all you need to do is follow some simple steps to personalise your experience.
How to get involved
Visit myridelondon.co.uk to register and choose your distance. You can do 19, 46 or 100 miles . Or sign up to My Freecycle which is anything with non-motorised wheels: scooter, skateboard, balance bike, wheelchair, unicycle or scooter, the choice is yours. Have fun and set your own challenge by choosing the My Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle option when you register.
Register before the event weekend of 15 and 16 August, you’ll be able to download the My Prudential RideLondon app – from here you can track and log your ride.
How you can fundraise for Sands
Once you’ve registered and chosen your challenge you’ll be able to set up your fundraising page so you can let others know what you’re doing, that you're supporting Sands and how they can sponsor you – and encourage them to take part too! We recommend using the official fundraising partner Virgin Money Giving – it’s 100 per cent not for profit, so more money goes directly to your chosen charity. You can also spread the word on social media by using the hashtag #MyPRL whenever you post about the event.
If you already have a fundraising page as you were originally taking part in Ride London this year, this will change to the My Ride London event so you can still use that page to continue fundraising. This is for JustGiving and VirginMoneyGiving.
When is the event taking place?
15th and 16th August.
Set your wheels in motion and complete your challenge over the weekend of 15 and 16 August! We'll all be completing our challenges that weekend, so sign up, start fundraising and be ready to ride over the weekend of 15 and 16 August.
Once you’ve finished and your challenge has been tracked by the app, you’ll be able to download and print your personalised finisher certificate.
We'll also be in touch from Sands, thanking you for all your amazing support!
