What better way to kick off the Ride the Night countdown than to gather celebrities, charities and thirty Ride the Night participants at the iconic London landmark last week.
Occupying three London Eye capsules, the army of women pedalled hard on static bikes to achieve a goal of cycling over 100 km, pedalling a combined total of 300km across three stationary bikes. We can’t think of a better view to turbo to!
“Women V Cancer is a charity very close to my heart, as we know, too many people are affected by cancer and I want to do all I can to help and do my bit.” – Katy Marchant
Team GB Olympic bronze medal winning cyclist, Katy Marchant has announced that she too will be taking part in this year’s Ride the Night event.
Katy will be cycling alongside the Yorkshire Lasses, her local club, and she can’t wait to hit the road with them. The Olympian continued: “I’m really excited to be involved with an event like RTN, not only to help raise some money but to get the opportunity to ride around London with 1000s of other women, including the Yorkshire Lasses.
Women V. Cancer Ride the Night will take place this year on Saturday May 27th, and I’ll be there riding with friends to do my bit for these wonderful charities.
Although entries have closed for 2017, Ride the Night announced that registration for Ride the Night 2018 is now open. In order to meet the huge demand for places, there will be two event nights – Saturday 5th May and Saturday 26th May. You can register for the event here.
