Guildford Audi raise thousands for Alzheimer's Society at the 2016 Ride London​

The Prudential RideLondon is a 3 day festival of cycling held in London every year for the past 4 years. Taking a cue from the London Marathon, amateur cyclists participate in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 – a 100-mile challenge on the same closed roads as the professionals, with the added incentive of raising money for good causes.

This year, our brave Guildford Audi team, including Ross Wright, Tiernan Day, Alan Dodge, James Bisset, Adam Cowee, Neil Merritt, Daniel Deller, Peter O'Gara and Alexander Gillham took on RideLondon 2016, in aid of Alzheimer's Society.

Between them, they have managed to raise a fantastic £4,000, and are still hoping to hit their target of £6,000 - if you'd like to donate you can find the details at the bottom of this page.

Still buzzing from yesterday's challenge, Ross Wright tells us about his experience at the UK's biggest cycling extravaganza.

"I'm done in today, it was a great event though! My legs, back, neck, head, knees, hands, pretty much everything are totally gone. I'm feeling empty and in need of some recovery!  It was one of hardest things anyone can do - 80 miles in and I promise you I had nothing left in the tank. Will power and pride dragged me to the end.

"Waiting at the start line alongside 30,000 other cyclists including my amazing team, and then riding through a closed road central London was absolutely incredible! This is the second year I've taken part in Ride London, and it's the hardest thing i've ever have to do and i've no plans to do it again, but you never know, the cycling bug might tempt me!

"If I had any top tips for anyone thinking of taking on a similar challenge, make sure you know your limits and keep hydrated, but most of all enjoy it.

'We are all so proud we completed this extremely tough challenge and are delighted that we have so far raised £4,000. Thank you to everyone who has supported our cause, we'd really like to reach our target so if you would like to donate please click here.'
