August saw the culmination of months of training for our Ride London Surrey riders, where they completed the 100 mile cycle ride starting in at the Olympic Park and finishing along the Mall, we were there to greet them in Green Park, to offer our support and thanks for undertaking such a huge task. The LPUK 2019 riders were: Leon Hellyer, James Hays, Mark Hayward, Andrew Parnowski, Chris Glazier and Richard Scott-Jenkins, along with Gareth Bussey and Richard Bannister who wore LPUK cycling shirts to raise awareness.
