Every year Brentford FC Community Sports Trust enters a team into Ride London – the London Marathon for cyclists. It is a great event and has traditionally been the biggest fundraiser that the Trust undertakes and as a result they have decided to extend their team of riders for this years event.
Ride London takes place on Sunday 30th July, with the 100-mile cycle beginning at the Olympic Park, Stratford.
For the 100-mile cycle the Trust are asking participants to raise £600. For the 46-mile cycle they are looking for £300. And for the peloton (a team of 4 where one person cycles 100 miles, one 75 miles, one 50 miles and one 25 miles – collecting your team members along the way finishing as a team) – £250 per place.
Once registered each rider will receive a Brentford FC CST fundraising guide and a newly designed Brentford FC CST cycling shirt. In the build-up to the event the trust will host free training rides to prepare cyclists for the event. When you finally cross the finish line, there will be a Picnic in the Park to replenish your energy stores.
The deadline for registering participants is Friday 26th May at 3pm so you will need to get a swerve on.
