PRUDENTIAL RIDE

Simon Hardy and fellow KLCC cyclist Kersten Muller are taking part in the Prudential Ride London 100-mile bike sportive on August 2.

This starts from the Olympic Park, Stratford, and finishes on The Mall. With 25,000 cyclists participating on closed roads, it promises to be an epic ride, tackling the famous Leith Hill and Box Hill climbs on the course. The duo have set themselves the challenge of riding the 100 miles.

They are both keen cyclists and wanted to combine their passion for the sport with raising money for a worthy charity Meningitis Now.

Simon said: “Meningitis Now charity is close to my heart because as a baby I was diagnosed with meningitis and spent a week in hospital, so I am pleased to support this worthy charity.”

They have been training alongside other club riders who are also participating in this event.
