LONDON 2 CAMBRIDGE
Congratulations to our London 2 Cambridge Moonriders who successfully completed the 100km ride on Friday night - great to see so many taking on the challenge and reaching the finish line in excellent time. The photos will shortly be emailed and shared, so keep an eye out!
It was brilliant to see everyone in such great spirits, as they cycled beneath the moonlight from the capital to Cambridge. Setting off from Hackney Marshes, riders made their way out of London and through the sleepy towns of Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire. We saw large groups of friends and family, smaller teams of two or three, along with the solo Moonriders too - all striving for the finish line, where they were greeted with rousing applause! The celebratory breakfast and glass of champagne topped off yet another memorable night of Moonriders...
- The challenge saw 257 participants take on the 100km from London to Cambridge.
- The fastest rider completed the course in an impressive 3hrs 42mins.
- The participant on the course for the longest time took 10hrs 18mins.
- Congratulations to the fastest man (also fastest rider) - Richard Merrell who cycled back!
- A well done to the fastest woman - Teresa Uscategui who came 10th after 5hrs 9mins.
A total of 248 riders completed the event, which is an incredible 96% of participants - the highest success rates we've ever had on one of our Moonriders. A massive congratulations to you all!
