In a parallel world, the eighth edition of Prudential RideLondon would be fast approaching.  The world’s greatest festival of cycling was due to take place on the weekend of 15 and 16 August but, understandably, has not been able to go ahead in its traditional form this year. 

This has been very disappointing for charities like EdUKaid that rely on these events to raise crucial funds but all is not lost......

About My Prudential RideLondon

We’re celebrating the original August event weekend with My Prudential RideLondon: a free fundraising challenge that gives people the opportunity to get on their bikes – or scooters, skateboards, trikes, tandems, penny farthings, unicycles – and raise money to help us transform the lives of children in rural Tanzania.  

Choose your distance

You will be able to sign up for one of four challenges based on the traditional Prudential RideLondon weekend event distances:

  • My Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 miles
  • My Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46 miles
  • My Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 19 miles
  • My Prudential RideLondon Free Cycle - as many miles as you want on whatever wheels you like.

How do I sign up?

  • Go to myridelondon to register
  • Pick your distance
  • Set up a fundraising page choosing EdUKaid as your charity of your choice at Virgin Money Giving
  • The My Prudential RideLondon app will then be available to download in the week before the event.
  • On or before Saturday 15 August or Sunday 16 August, complete your challenge and encourage your family and friends to sponsor you.
  • Once you have completed your ride you will be able to download a personalised certificate, selfie frames so you can create your own finisher photos, and crucially, you will have raised vital funds for EdUKaid.

Get the app

The app will allow you to virtually compare your My Prudential RideLondon route to the world-famous Prudential RideLondon routes.

So, if you choose to ride the 100 miles, you may be taking part in Southampton, Birmingham or Newcastle, but the app will show your ride as if it was on the Prudential RideLondon route. Imagine the final 100m back to your home turned into the final 100m down the iconic finish stretch of The Mall!

In addition, your supporters can view your progress remotely during your ride and sponsor you via the app, making it even easier for them to donate to your charity.

Tempted? Let us know and help get the message out there!

If you want to join in with My Prudential RideLondon, please let us know as your participation will hopefully encourage others to take part and raise money too.

It would be amazing if you could share you challenge on social media, using the official @PrudentialRideLondon channels and the hashtags #MyPRL and #toliveistolearn. We’ve included a draft social media script here if you need some ideas.

We’d love it if you could do any media interviews that would help us amplify the event and our ambition to raise as much funds as possible.

If you are happy to speak to the media about taking part, please let us know.

Thank you for taking the time to read this – we’d really love you to be part of a unique My Prudential RideLondon experience and help us change a child's life through education.
