Cycling from London to Surrey (and back) for the KPA

Ride London Sam 2

The KPA had three cyclists in the Prudential London – Surrey 100 mile cycle ride on Sunday 10th August; Chris, Ian and Sam (pictured). Despite the adverse weather conditions all three of them completed the course. Chris said: “ it was VERY wet and then it got VERY VERY wet!” However all clouds have a silver lining and the sun shone on the finishing line just outside Buckingham Palace.

On the day, the total distance of the course was reduced by 14 miles as some of the roads around Box Hill and Leith Hill had been replaced by fast flowing rivers! This did not deter one man who rode dressed only in a T shirt, baggy shorts and trainers, on a BMX bike with single speed and one of those tiny saddles that they never sit on!  

Chris said the best parts were:

  • closed roads
  • hearing someone fall over and burst out laughing in a portaloo!
  • riding up The Mall towards Buckingham Palace with the sun finally shining
  • not having to eat any more energy bars
  • getting home, having a bacon sarnie, 2 cups of coffee, a chocolate brownie and telling my wife and boys all about it …

Together Chris, Ian and Sam have raised over £3000.00 for the KPA. Its not too late to sponsor them:

Well done Chris, Ian and Sam and many thanks from the KPA!
