An incredible £4,480 was raised by 2016’s RideLondon team from Knights, Wynne Construction, Ultimate Creative and Chester Zoo.
Amanda Bailey, Emyr Kerfoot, Chris Wynne, David Wynne, Rob Leech, Jon Walker and Nick Davis all successfully crossed the finish line in the name of wildlife conservation.
RideLondon was brilliant! There was an amazing atmosphere throughout the day
2016 was Jon’s second time at RideLondon, having also cycled at the 2015 event for Act for Wildlife. In 2016, Jon and his colleagues from Ultimate Creative, Matt and Amy Townsend, each conquered their own cycling challenge.
In 2015, all four of our cycling champions reached The Mall even quicker than they had expected and raised over £2,000 for wildlife.
Paul Round, Giraffe Keeper at Chester Zoo, was joined by Pippa Hague from the Hillyer McKeown Group and Jon Walker and Matt Townsend, colleagues from Ultimate Creative Communications.
To fuel her training and raise even more for wildlife conservation, Pippa even held an animal-themed bake sale.
In 2014, friends and colleagues Christopher Kehoe and Ian Meaden cycled the 100 mile route and successfully raised over £1,000. They enjoyed whizzing through traffic-free central London and reaching the 75 mile point just as the sun came out, before successfully making it to the finish line.
In 2013, Chester Zoo member Stephen Caunce and colleague Rob Sidwell were awarded the places and took on the 100 mile cycling challenge, completing it in 6hrs 3mins and raising over £2000 between them.
We had so much support along the route and it was a great feeling to finish in a brilliant time knowing we’d raised such a lot of money for Act for Wildlife
