As part of our activity at RideLondon, we were entrusted by the organisers to lead 30 guided rides in and out of the city centre for FreeCycle, coming from boroughs across the capital.
In all, over 2000 people benefitted from our guided rides, some of whom were new to cycling.
We're delighted to have shown so many people how easy and quick it is to get around London by bike.
We know these rides have real value to people, and hope they contribute to them deciding to try out cycling.
We're hugely grateful for our experienced team of ride leaders and marshals, who led these guided rides.
