Volunteer Dawn to ride 100 miles for Dogs Trust

Volunteer Dawn cycling

With only 14 days to go until Ride London, our Volunteer Dawn is training extra hard to prepare to cycle 100 miles to raise money for Dogs Trust.

Prudential Ride London is a festival of cycling, developed by the Mayor of London and his agencies in partnership with Surrey County Council. Staged for the first time in August 2013, it is the largest festival of cycling in the world with more than 100,000 participants expected to cycle more than three million miles in six different events over the weekend of 3-4 August 2019.

Dawn will be taking part in the Prudential Ride London-Surrey which will take her through the capital into Surrey’s countryside views. Dawn will ride alongside 17 other members of team Dogs Trust, hoping to raise funds for the hounds.

Dawn’s start time is 7am on Sunday 4th August and those who want to cheer her on can get down to Buckingham Palace for 5pm. Look out for the bright yellow Dogs Trust branded vest!

Dawn said:

“Training has been going well so far, last night was hill reps which involves riding up and down a hill in the hope of building up strength for the ride’s 3 major hills, which are all about 16% incline. Saturday will be my last endurance ride and I hope to reach my first century and achieve a 100km. 78km was my last endurance ride so it should be easily done.

I have been experimenting with portable food as eating enough calories can be a real problem – a sentence I never thought I’d hear myself say. What keeps me going however is knowing that the £500 I raise will really help dogs in great need get the treatment they deserve.”
