The Covid-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on TVF's fundraising with the cancellation of events and the loss of income at a time when families and medical students need us most. As the Prudential RideLondon in its regular form has been postponed due to COVID-19 you can join in a free festival of cycling.
Get on your bike – or scooter, skateboard, tandem, penny farthing, trike, unicycle – and join the free My Prudential RideLondon event to help save the UK's charities on 15-16 August 2020. Whatever your age or ability, you can join in – wherever you live in the UK and with whoever you like – family, friends or by yourself. It’s your ride, your way and we hope in support of The Victoria Foundation.
Celebrate cycling, support The Victoria Foundation and help to transform lives. My Prudential RideLondon is free to enter – all you need to do is register, choose your distance, follow some simple steps to personalise your experience, and set up a fundraising page in support of The Victoria Foundation.
Choose from one of four challenges for all ages and abilities, which you can do on a route of your choice, wherever you are in the world, on 15 or 16 August and during registration the site will provide a link to Virgin Money Giving where you can set up your fundraising page.
Whatever you choose to do for My Prudential RideLondon – cycle 19, 46 or 100 miles, scoot around your local park, or trundle up and down your garden on your trike – help to inspire others and share pictures or videos of your challenge on social media using the official hashtag #MyPRL.
Just before the event weekend of 15 and 16 August, you’ll be able to download the My Prudential RideLondon app – from here you can track, share and log your ride. The main thing is to get active, have fun and fundraise to help save the UK’s charities - by doing it in support of The Victoria Foundation you will be helping to transform lives.

Prudential Ride100-mile challenge - CANCELLED
100-mile challenge on the same closed roads as the professionals, with the added incentive of raising money for such a good cause. As well as raising money, cycling for TVF can help raise awareness of the charity as you'll be seen by hundreds of people wearing TVF's logo on Ride Day, and everyone who sponsors you will learn more about the charity and the great work we do. We rely on events like this to help raise awareness of TVF and encourage people to donate. The route Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 starts from 05:45 in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then follows a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside. With leg-testing climbs and a route made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics, it's a truly spectacular event for all involved. The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 finishes on The Mall in central London, shortly before 150 professional cyclists race in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic on a similar route.
