Join us for RideLondon 2017!
Are you up for a challenge? We have a limited number of places for the Prudential Ride London Surrey 100 due to take place on 30th July 2017. Join the ever popular trend for road cycling and enjoy London as never before – traffic free! Push on out for some testing climbs in the Surrey countryside and help raise funds for Act4Africa.
Why choose Ride London Surrey 100?
Ride London Surrey 100 follows a route made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics. The 100 mile course starts at the Olympic Park and follows a modified version of the London 2012 Olympic Road Race, out to leafy Surrey, taking in the long climb up Box Hill and back into Central London to a memorable finish line on The Mall. Our 2015 fundraising team had a great day in the sunshine, all completed the ‘moderate’ to ‘tough’ course and had the experience of a lifetime!
How do I sign up?
To sign up simply download the Ride London Entry form & Declaration and return it to us with your £50 entrance fee. There is a minimum sponsorship commitment, but we’ll support you every step of the way. We’ll provide you with a fundraising pack full of tips and advice to help you reach your sponsorship target. DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION: FRIDAY 26th MAY 2017.

Why should I go 100 miles for Act4Africa again?
By cycling for Act4Africa you can help us to give young women and girls in Africa the future that they deserve.
£25 will support one young woman’s membership of a local enterprise group for a year. Set up as part of Act4Africa’s HEAL initiative (Health, Empowerment and Livelihoods), group membership provides improved life-chances and livelihoods for out-of-school adolescent girls and young women.
£50 will keep a teenage girl in school for a year. Where we operate, 60% of girls never attend school. They are susceptible to early pregnancy, ill health and poverty. £20 will pay for her uniform and shoes, £10 for a back pack and educational supplies, and £8 will provide her with sanitary protection to allow her to attend school regularly.
£75 will train a community mentor in sexual and reproductive health rights and gender equality, as well as basic business skills. Community mentors learn the skills to deliver the training they have received to other women in their communities, so they may act as ‘change agents’ to mobilise whole communities to stand up against gender inequality and violence.
These are just a few of the women and girls you will could help by going the 100 miles for us. There are hundreds more who need your support. In September we will open our first community health and education centre in Uganda. Kathy’s Centre will help vulnerable women and children other members of the Mayuge community by providing a pre-school, youth club, community education programme and HIV testing and counselling facilities. We still have some way to go to meet our fundraising target to allow us to kit out the centre by September.
Taking part in RIDE London offers the opportunity for you to help support Act4Africa in all that they do, and we guarantee that 90p in every £1 you raise goes directly to our projects in Africa.
Congratulations to all our 2016 Riders on your 100 mile achievement and thank you to your supporters for raising over £3000 for Act4Africa.
