‘Ride London Surrey 100’ cycle event

What a wonderful friendly carnival atmosphere in Dorking on Sunday for the annual ‘Ride London Surrey 100’ cycle event.

With fabulous weather conditions, Sunday saw over 25,000 amateur and elite riders take part in this year’s event – and part of the stretch through Surrey sees riders head through the historic streets of Dorking.

So many people turned out to cheer the riders on, and it was also great to see so many local and national charities being supported – Dorking-based Brigitte Trust (www.brigittetrust.org), St Catherine’s Hospice (www.stch.org.uk), The Grange Centre in Bookham (www.grangecentre.org.uk) and the East Surrey Branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association (www.mndassociation.org), to name just a few – with many local business owners amongst the riders, including Andrew Pirt from Station View Garage (www.stationviewgarage.co.uk), Peter Vaughan from Broadway Malyon and Simon Bishop from David Howard Accountants (www.davidhoward.co.uk).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With high fives in West Street with Dorkers, the Friends of Dorking seven-foot cockerel mascot, and cheered on through the town by the Dorking Town Crier, many local shops and businesses also opened their doors to support the event, including The King’s Arms (www.kingsarmsdorking.co.uk), Mullins Coffee Shop (www.mullinscoffeeshop.co.uk), The White Horse Hotel (www.whitehorsedorking.com) and Mayflower Spa (www.mayflowerspadorking.com), a luxury spa coming soon to the heart of this lovely market town.
