Joe McLaughlin completes the Prudential Ride London bike ride on Sunday 31st July
Starting at 7.03am from the Olympic park in Stratford he completed the 100mile loop around the Surrey hills and back to The Mall in a ride time of 5hrs13mins.
Raising over £1000 for the charity Bliss it was an amazing experience and a real honour to ride for such a great cause.
Riding along with 26,000 other riders on open roads was both thrilling and un-nerving at the same time. A deliberate looking nail in his tyre at the 30 mile mark and short hold ups at two of the major downhill crashes aside, it was an excellent day and a highly recommended challenge.
Big thanks to all of those who donated! It’s not too late here: https:
