The nine #teamFIT riders taking part in the Prudential RideLondon all crossed the line successfully on Sunday afternoon having completed the tough 100 mile course.
First of the Fields in Trust riders across the line were Jon Stagg and Tim Walker, who finished just a second apart after just over 4 hours 39 minutes in the saddles. The pair were riding as part of the team of four friends and all successfully completed the challenge within an hour of each other, with Tom Irwin and Alastair Qualtrough following home the leading pair.
Laura Addie and Michael Cloke also finished together followed by Stephen Honey, and it wasn't long before all nine of Fields in Trust's riders had successfully clocked up the 100 mile course.
Jamie Goodman, riding alongside childhood friend Seb Kirk, said: "The ride was a real challenge, but very rewarding and amazing having so many people out cheering you on the route motivating you to carry on! It was great to be supporting such a worthwhile charity and cycling past many of the parks it protects!"
Seb and Jamie (pictured) have fond memories of playing football with friends and family over the years at their two local parks, Cock Lane Recreation Ground in Fetcham and King George V Playing Field in Effingham, both of which are protected with Fields in Trust.
