This weekend saw the inaugural Ride London - Surrey 100 taking place and a year on from the Olympics it proved to be another wonderful celebration of cycling in the capital. The early hours of Sunday morning saw thousands of lycra clad cyclists make their way to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to set off on a 100 mile course which would take in some of London’s most iconic landmarks as well as the picturesque surrey countryside. 

As we welcomed back riders to our post-race reception we heard of near misses, sightings of Boris, the thrill of closed roads and plenty of tough climbs. However the overwhelming reaction was one of pride at having completed a fantastic challenge all in the name of beating blood cancers.

Well done to all of our Unstoppable Riders including our celebrity team who were lead out by our new Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research cycling ambassador and 2012 Olympic gold medallist Dani King. 

Take a look below at just a few photos and tweets from the day.
