Having wondered how long it would take before the hardcore cyclists from Anglian would be back out again on their bikes, we did not have to wait too long for news of the next cycling challenge.
Following James Wilson’s recent ride from Ipswich to Paris for the charity Suffolk Young People’s Health Project (4YP) with a small team of cyclists headed by Nicky Hunt, 2 time Commonwealth gold medallist in Archery. We hear that three of the original Anglian team that completed the Bobby on a Bike 2012 charity ride from the East coast of Suffolk to the West coast of Wales will be out riding again.

Kev Barber, Carey Pearson and James Wilson, will be riding in the Prudential Ride London Surrey 100, on Sunday 4th August. The annual two day cycling festival is the biggest UK cycling sporting event, and is considered a legacy of the 2012 Olympic Games.
With an anticipated 20,000 riders, the 100 mile route will offer amateur cyclists the chance to ride on the same closed roads as the professionals ending at the Mall in London. The event will be shown live on the TV and seen by millions across the UK and abroad, and is hoped will raise money for several charities and good causes.
The Anglian blog team would like to wish all the riders ‘good luck’, and hope that you keep your eyes on the blog for updates of the event!
