Prudential RideLondon for Topic of Cancer

A true legacy of the 2012 Games

Developed by the Mayor of London and his agencies in 2013, Prudential RideLondon is the world’s greatest festival of cycling. The seventh edition will take place over the weekend of 3-4 August 2019.

There is no other closed-road event like it that combines the fun and accessible element of a free family ride in central London with the excitement of watching the world’s best professional cyclists race in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic and Prudential RideLondon Classique.

Taking a cue from the London Marathon , amateur cyclists also participate in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 – a 100-mile challenge on the same closed roads as the professionals, with the added incentive of raising money for good causes. Since 2016, the event has also featured the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46 – a 46-mile sportive created specifically for newer and also younger cyclists, and in 2018 the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 19 was added to the programme.

We only have 8 places left so clean off your bike, get on the road and have fun.

You can contact us for more information either via our website: or email

Thank you, thank you very much for your continued support – it’s a great event and a great fun day out!

Karen Fredborg is walking the Thames Path Challenge

Start date: 7th September, 2019

End date: 8th September, 2019

Location: River Thames, London

Karen Fredborg is walking the Thames Path Challenge for Topic of Cancer – here’s her story.

I’m raising money to fund Dr Nicola Annels and her ground-breaking research into immunotherapy – for bladder and other cancers. As cancers grow, they start to fool the immune system so that the body cannot recognise them and therefore destroy them. So Nicola is developing a new cancer-killing virus to treat cancer – the virus will kick start the immune system to specifically target, infect and destroy cancer cells very efficiently, without causing the awful side effects that traditional chemo and radiotherapy cause. Immunotherapy treatment also means that the body will be primed to fight the cancer if it reoccurs. Nicola is based at the University of Surrey and her cancer research team is one of the few centres in the UK that is leading the way in immunotherapy.

I will walk the Thames Path Challenge 50k in September 2019. My target is £500 – £10 for every kilometre, £1 for every 100metres. I am excited about Nicola’s work, just imagine such important research takes place at our local university! I also love the fact that Topic of Cancer spends less than 1% on admin. This is extremely low and means that pretty much all the money!

Here’s Karen’s fund raising page, please support her
