On Sunday 2 August 2015, 40 rhino riders will be cycling 100 miles across central London and surrey in this year’s Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100, becoming part of the biggest annual cycling festival in the world. Beginning at the Queen Elizabeth Park in Stratford, this iconic route follows in the path of London’s 2012 Olympic athletes as it winds it’s way through the streets of London, out into leafy surrey, over box hill and back into the city, past world-famous landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace before finishing by Green Park. The riders will lead the way for the professionals who take to the roads shortly after in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic, where the best of the best battle it out to be crowned winner.
This is the third year Save the Rhino have taken part in this exciting festival of cycling. With riders raising money to help support rhino conservation – this year is set to be a great one. Cyclists such as Chris Scott have taken on the challenge, of not only cycling 100 miles, but raising over £1,000 along the way. We want to wish all of our riders the very best of luck and thank them for all their hard work and determination in aid of the rhino. Their efforts will make a huge difference for rhino conservation around the world. Please show your support and donate.
