We’re so very proud of James for entering this year’s challenge, which saw thousands of cyclists tackling one of the most gruelling routes of the RideLondon Festival on Sunday, 29 May. James persuaded three of his friends to join him as a team making this epic round-trip journey, alongside so many others raising thousands of pounds for their charities. Looking at the route, ahead of the day, we thought he was very brave indeed. In good conditions – a north-easterly wind which was tough on the outbound stretch, but very helpful for the return journey – James completed the route in 6 hours and 17 minutes, which is fantastic. He clearly has great gifts of persuasion too … we’re truly overwhelmed by the support his friends and family have given to his fundraising campaign. Thank you, James, for stepping so brilliantly into gear for us! We really appreciate it.
