A huge thank you and congratulations to the 15 cyclists who participated on Sunday 28th May, taking on what is known as the world’s greatest festival of cycling; the RideLondon-Essex 100.
Around 22,500 cyclists took part in the 10th anniversary of the event, which saw a very sunny and warm day for those taking part. Riders taking on the 100-mile challenge made their way into Essex via the historic Epping Forest. From there, they cruised past some of the county’s most picturesque towns and villages – where residents lined the streets to cheer them on – for around 65 miles, before heading back into central London, where a rapturous applause awaited them at Tower Bridge: a fitting end to an epic day in the saddle.
There was a CRY cheering station near the end of the 100-mile course, with CRY staff and volunteers making as much noise as possible with their CRY cowbells, whistles and clap bangers to cheer on the CRY cyclists to help spur them on to the finish line.
The CRY Team were congratulated and welcomed back at the finish area on Tooley Street by CRY staff. CRY riders were given a CRY medal along with some snacks and refreshments after their fantastic efforts on the day. After taking their photos and meeting the family and friends of Team CRY, it was lovely to speak to the team about their experiences of the event.
