RIDE100 Reveal 2014 Events

RIDE100Online registration has opened for the RIDE100 series of UK road rides run by children’s charity Action Medical Research with an earlybird discount of 15%, limited to the first 500 entrants. The RIDE100 series runs from April to the end of September, with rides taking in some of the country’s most stunning cycling locations. All offer a choice of either a mid-distance ‘Classic’ or full-on sportive ‘Champion’ routes, with many now also including a shorter ‘Cool’ route. The season starts on April 13, with the Peterborough 100 and all-new Bath 100.


The charity’s cycling ambassador Joanna Rowsell (surely still smiling after last weekend’s impressive victories) is encouraging cyclists to sign, commenting,  ‘It’s been great to see so many more people inspired to get on their bikes in recent years. The RIDE100 series is a perfect opportunity for cyclists of all abilities to put themselves to the test on some great routes and for an even better reason – helping sick and disabled babies and children. There is a distance for everyone, whether you prefer to play it Cool, be Classic or go Champion. I’m proud to support such a worthwhile charity and one that is so passionate about cycling. I hope you’ll join us in 2014.’


All rides are fully supported by the Action Medical Research team, with food and water stations, chip timing, marshals and mechanics. Cyclists riding for the charity raise money to fund medical research to help save and change the lives of sick and disabled babies and children.
