Over the weekend, thousands of women dressed up in their finest high viz and neon to cycle 100km through the streets of London to raise money for cancer charities.
The Women V Cancer Ride the Night became the biggest female cycling event in the UK this year, attracting over 2,000 women willing to cycle as the sun went down on Saturday May 28. They raised over £1million for Breast Cancer Care, Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust and Ovarian Cancer Action.
Riding from the Royal Windsor Racecourse, into central London and back again, hordes of women in fancy dress were also joined by a few celebrities – Countdown’s leading ladies Rachel Riley and Susie Dent, and This Morning’s Sue Hill.
As well as having the chance to see the Coca Cola London Eye’s lights turn pink to mark the occasion, the women were treated to Sunday morning breakfast back at the racecourse.
Still a young event, Ride the Night celebrated its inaugural year in 2014, but its popularity as a ride has continued to grow.
