RideLondon 2024

26th May

RideLondon

RideLondon  – the world’s greatest festival of cycling returns on Sunday 26th May 2024 and you could ride for TOFS!

Entry fee:
£25

This fee goes towards the admin fees charged by the race organisers but will count towards your fundraising pledge. Payable to TOFS on successful application. 

Fundraising commitment:
£500 (100 mile ride)
£250 (60 mile ride)

This is the minimum amount (before Gift Aid) that we would expect a participant to raise. But you don’t have to stop there! TOFS cyclists really go for it and most will raise above that figure.

For 2024 we are offering places in either the 100 mile ride or the 60 mile ride. Simply let us know which one you would prefer on the application form.

At the heart of this celebration of all things cycling is the RideLondon-Essex 100 challenge – a unique opportunity to ride 100 miles on traffic-free roads through the heart of London and neighbouring Essex.

Ride for TOFS and help us support those born unable to swallow.

There is no minimum fundraising commitment if you are riding for TOFS using your own place, but our own ballot place cyclists usually aim for £500-£1000, and achieve or beat it!

Please complete our short form so we can find out a bit about you and get you signed up to the TOFS Team.

Please note: 

We have filled our 100mile ride team but you can still apply to join our 60mile ride team.

Please complete the form below.

About you

About your fundraising experience

About your cycling experience

TOFS will support you by offering:

  • Someone to talk to: a person who has done RideLondon in the past; 
  • A limited edition TOFS cycling top to wear with pride on your big day; 
  • Disposable rain poncho to keep you dry on the way to, and whilst waiting around at, the start; 
  • TOFS T-shirts or baseball caps for your supporters (upon request) so they have an amazing day too; 
  •  

Important Notes:
You will require your own road bike and all your kit.  Moreover, you will need to make all your own transport and  accommodation arrangements.

Fundraising:
Please use People’s Fundraising who charge us much lower fees than some of the other fundraising platforms. This means more of your donations will be passed to TOFS.

If you have been allocated a TOFS place but are unable to participate in or complete the Ride London for any reason, all donated monies collected by you or donated via third parties (such as fundraising websites) in support of TOFS must be forwarded to TOFS.
