This year’s DSWF RideLondon team took on the 100 mile challenge with huge courage and great results, helping to raise over £5,000 for endangered wildlife.

Winding through London and Surrey, the 100-mile route is the London Marathon of cycling. It starts in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London, then follows on closed roads through the south-west of the capital and out to Surrey, before finishing at The Mall.

Chris Barrow from Alton, Colin March from Farnham and seasoned veteran David Walker from Malvern, took on the challenge for DSWF this year cheered on by the crowds and achieved some great results.
