Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100
Approximately 25,000 amateur cyclists took part in a cycling challenge like no other through London and Surrey on Sunday 30 July. The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 started in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, went out through London to Surrey’s stunning country roads and hills before returning to the capital to finish in spectacular style on The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace.
In this year’s Prudential RideLondon – Surrey 100 race six members of South West London Pathology staff took part. For further information about the event go to https://www.prudentialridelondon.co.uk/
SWLP Peloton Relay Team
Each rider of the peloton relay team completed a different distance of the challenge while all enjoyed the satisfaction of cycling across the finish line on The Mall.
Rider 1 (Justin Steel) 100 miles; Rider 2 (Sohail Azhar) 74 miles; Rider 3 (Jenn Owen) 53 miles; Rider 4 (Saghar Missaghian-Cully) 25 miles. The team came 10th out of 200 peloton teams!
Saghar explains which charity the SWLP peloton relay team are riding for and why: “This year marks the 20th anniversary of my mum’s passing from Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, just 6 months after diagnosis, she was 50 years old. Everyone in the team has been kind enough to agree that we raise funds for The Lymphoma Association – our target is £2,800.
The team have managed to smash their target of £2,800 but are still accepting donations. If you would like to donate
