On the 4th August 2019, the Sofa to Saddle team will be supporting 10 complete novices on the toughest challenge of their lives - the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100.
A 100 mile ride around the streets of London and the gruelling Surrey Hills, made even more challenging, as it has to be completed within 8 1/2 hours.
Having never ridden more than 10 miles before, in January, each of the participants will begin a life-changing journey, that will take them from Sofa to Saddle, and way beyond.
To put this in context, an ambitious new cyclist might aim to complete a 40 mile sportive within six months. A really ambitious one might aim for 60. And sportives tend to attract a wider range of abilities, so plenty of time is given to complete the route.
The pace required to complete the full 100 mile RideLondon route, within the time limits, makes this challenge a whole lot tougher!
