This July, 11 lucky students will be joining 26,000 other cyclists in completing the annual PruGoals Ride London cycling event. This is a 46 mile bike race that will take participants past many of London’s iconic landmarks, finishing outside Buckingham Palace.
This week was the second visit to the Lee Valley Velodrome situated in London’s Olympic Park. Students attended a number of workshops designed to help them plan their training, develop an understanding of nutrition and complete a short 8 mile training ride. Students were also extremely fortunate to spend the day working alongside double Olympic champion Dame Kelly Holmes who gave students an insight into her life as an elite athlete, her background when growing up, and what drove her to succeed. The day was truly inspirational and we now all look forward to the main event in July.
