My RideLondon - a virtual cycle challenge
The weekend of 15 and 16 August would have been Prudential RideLondon, one of the biggest and best cycling festivals in the country. Although we can't all ride together, we can still join together to celebrate cycling and support UK charities.
Whether its by bike, wheelchair, scooter, or skateboard, and no matter the distance, your movement and your fundraising will make a difference to those around the world trying to survive without clean water close to home.
How to take part in My RideLondon
1. Register: visit myridelondon.co.uk and select from three cycling distances - or invent your own My FreeCycle challenge.
2. Fundraise: set up your fundraising page and let people know you’re supporting WaterAid. If you already have a page for RideLondon, just continue to use that!
3. Participate: set your wheels in motion and complete your challenge anywhere, at any time, over the weekend of 15 and 16 of August!
4. Nominate: encourage your family and friends to take part. Spread the word on social media too, using the hashtag #MyPRL.

Why we need your help
We all know handwashing is one of the first lines of defence against coronavirus, but globally 4 in 10 people don’t have anywhere to wash their hands. Our teams are racing to reach more communities than ever with clean water and information about good hygiene.
Just £100 could provide 500 bars of soap in West Africa. Will you help us reach more families with these life-saving essentials?
You can use JustGiving or Virgin Money to collect sponsorship for your challenge. Share your page with friends and family!
Or if you'd prefer, you can give a one-off donation to take part.
