Hi everyone,

I am helping organise a new event called Ride Around London so though might be of interest to some of you so here it is.

Ride Around London is a unique fundraising cycling event that will take place on Sunday 25th September 2011. Ride Around London will be a challenging 115 mile (approx.) annual cycling event taking in some of the fantastic cycling that London has to offer. The carefully planned route, taking in Olympic landmarks past and present, has been devised by respected cycle-tour veteran Andy Cook. Starting at the Herne Hill Velodrome, the route then goes up the iconic Box Hill, along the beautiful North Downs, through Windsor Great Park, passing Eton Dorney and the Chilterns and finishing next to the brand new 2012 Lee Valley White Water Centre. Visit www.accesssport.org.uk/ride-around-london for more details and to register.

There is also a 60mile half route and a 25mile off-road route and a BikeJAM festival at the end. We are aiming to get 1000+riders for the main event alone and are doing very well already.

If you want to have a look at www.accesssport.org.uk you can find out more information about the event and also see what we get up to as a charity. The main focus is helping support and set up sports clubs and keep them opperating by training and support for volunteers and helping fund equipment and facilities. One of the big projects we are currently working on is building 5 new BMX tracks in the 5 host boroughs in London and we continue to help and support clubs like CC Hackney too.

All proceeds go towards the excelent work of the charity.

There is also a corporate challenge for those companies and organisations that are a little bit competitive or like a team challenge. Email ridelondon@accesssport.co.uk for more details.

Please post a reply and let us know what you think of the event and if you will be or have already signed up as feedback is welcomed especially as it's first year!

Cheers
Hannah
