A 172-strong team of cyclists joined thousands of other riders to take part in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey in aid of Prevent Breast Cancer, raising over £10,000.
The annual bike ride, which took place on the traffic-free roads of London and Surrey on Sunday 4 August, saw supporters of the charity take to streets to raise money for Prevent Breast Cancer, which is the only UK charity entirely dedicated to the prediction and prevention of the disease.
Amongst the charity’s team of supporters were anaesthetists, radiographers and dietitians from Wythenshawe Hospital, Manchester, where Prevent Breast Cancer is based, as well as many cyclists whose lives had been impacted by the disease.
Nikki Barraclough, executive director at Prevent Breast Cancer, said: “We are thrilled to have been the official charity partner for RideLondon-Surrey 46, and we are so grateful to all of the cyclists who took part in various rides over the weekend to raise over £100,000.
“150 people are diagnosed with the disease every day, and it is the most common form of cancer in the UK, something we want to change. This ride has given those who have been affected by the disease a great opportunity to increase awareness, and also to raise money for our vital research into its prediction and prevention.”
