Greg swaps his dentist’s stool for a saddle in the Ride 100 charity event.

Our founder Greg Finn will swap his dentist’s stool for a saddle in August, riding 100 miles from London to Surrey in the Ride 100 event.
It’s the largest cycling event in the capital – with the roads closed and a huge cycling community taking on the course, following the elite cyclists who set off first.
It’s the same course followed by the Olympians at the 2012 London Games and Greg will be joined by his wife Inge.

Together they enjoy cycling and have been training – most recently a ride to Brighton.
They’ll be riding to raise money for the National Autistic Society which is close to their family and has helped them with one of their children for several years.

Greg said: “It’s a fair ride, but it’s not often you get to cycle across London traffic-free. I’ll be trying to take in some of the sights but mostly I’ll be peddling away to get to the finish line. If I can make a bit of money for the charity along the way then I’ll be happy.”

Greg will start the ride at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, heading off towards Canary Wharf and through the City of London before cycling through Piccadilly, Hammersmith, cross the River Thames at Chiswick, pass through Richmond Park and the heart of Kingston-upon-Thames, before crossing Hampton Court Bridge along the route made famous by both the road race and time-trial events during the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Into Surrey, he’ll cycle through the stunning countryside before reaching the world-famous zig-zags of Box Hill.

After taking on Leatherhead, Oxshott and Esher, he’ll come back into London through Kingston and over Putney Bridge to cross the River Thames for a final time. Along the Embankment all the way alongside the Thames past some of London’s most famous landmarks, he’ll then make his way across Parliament Square, up Whitehall, round Trafalgar Square, through Admirality Arch and into The Mall for the finish line.

He’s hoping to raise as much money as he can for the charity and if you’d like to donate, you can do here
