CTC Northampton at the London-Surrey 100 on Sunday 2nd August

At least six riders from CTC Northampton are taking part in the London-Surrey 100 on Sunday 2nd August.  This is a 100-mile ride on closed roads that follows the route of the 2012 Olympic Road Race, starting at the Olympic Park in Stratford, going out to the Surrey Hills and returning to London to finish on The Mall.

Four CTC Northampton riders were successful in the public ballot for places: Brian, Colin, Emily and Phil L.  Two more are taking part in teams from clubs affiliated to British Cycling: Phillip G is riding with Team MK and Ian M is riding with Forty-Plus CC.

Two riders have decided to use the opportunity to raise funds for charities.

Colin is seeking sponsorship on behalf of the Junior Diabetes Research Foundation.  This is a charity dear to him as his daughter has had diabetes since she was four.  You can help the charity through Colin’s webpage where he appears as Danny Lopez (a character in Dylan’s song “Something There Is About You” from the album “Planet Waves”)!

Phil L is seeking sponsorship on behalf of the Headway Foundation which supports those with brain injury in Northampton. This is a charity dear to him as he sustained a serious head injury himself when he fell from his bike in March last year. It is also the charity we support in our annual Guy Barber Ride. You can help through Phil’s webpage (Phil doesn’t appear as a character from a Dylan song!).
