Riding Across London for Refugees

featured image RL 2018 post

A special thank you to a team of 7 cyclists from PayPal who are cycling the Prudential Ride London to raise money for IRT. The 100-mile event starts at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park before finishing on The Mall.

Jess Tinker, from PayPal in Richmond, approached us and graciously claimed all our Ride London spaces. She ambitiously emailed around to her colleagues to start a team. Thankfully she found some keen cyclists in the office who have since been training for this very demanding event. For most of them this is their first time and, having met them, they are all very enthusiastic to get started. We went along to their cake sale, on Friday 20th July, where the team had baked some delicious cakes and biscuits to further support their fundraising.

 

Though they will be riding as individuals, they are all part of Team IRT and we are so grateful for their dedication and support.

We would like to wish Max, Alex, Jess, Justin, Dan, Oliver and Rob a massive good luck and an even bigger thank you!
