Ride London 2016

Tickhill Velo Club - RIDE LONDON 2016 REPORT This year saw six TV riders taking part in the famous RIDE LONDON Surrey 100. Everybody had their own chosen charity and Gary Durham in particular had a very personal interest in Breast Cancer UK after everything that his wife Alison has been through this year. Just awesome to see that our six riders will have raised well over £10,000 for some incredibly worthy causes this year and that’s more important than a bike ride for sure! Each of the six will have had their own personal objectives and each will have had to endure some pretty emotional and physical hardships during the ride (and falls & punctures!) Weather conditions were favourable, closed roads make for a very quick pace and there are plenty of drafting opportunities BUT there are also lots of crashes and worst of all a fatality on the ride for the 2nd consecutive year. Our thoughts are with this riders friends and family. You have to be very careful and sometimes just plain lucky to miss out on a crash amongst 29,000 riders of mixed abilities! It’s mainly flat but you do get challenged on a 15mile section around the Surrey ‘hills’ with Leith Hill in particular offering a decent climb (nothing to a TV goat of course!) The finish coming past Westminster sweeping under Marble Arch and onto The Mall is something that you can’t describe. Lined with thousands of cheering spectators and knowing that your family are there it’s quite an amazing finish and everybody gets a chance to do a ‘Cav’ over the line or just hold hands and celebrate with a ride buddy. An amazing ride. Memories of loved ones lost. Some incredible times with Gary’s 4h22m59s being the best of the lot and all six riders putting in great performances. The three guys and three girls wore the magenta with pride and a little bit of Yorkshire spread some happiness around the capital.
