Manitoba’s Leah Kirchmann placed 3rd at Prudential RideLondon on July 29. 2016. This was a great podium finish for Leah as she is getting herself ready for the Olympics in Rio this month!
Prudential RideLondon is the world’s greatest festival of cycling, with more than 100,000 cyclists participating during the weekend of 29-31 July 2016.
The festival was developed by the Mayor of London, London & Partners and Transport for London in partnership with Surrey County Council. The event is managed by the London & Surrey Cycling Partnership (LSCP).
It combines the fun and accessible element of a free family ride in central London with the excitement of watching the world’s best professional cyclists race. Taking a cue from the London Marathon, amateur cyclists also participate by riding a 100-mile or 46-mile challenge on the same closed roads as the professional men, with the added incentive of raising money for good causes. The best action is broadcast live on TV both on BBC TV in the UK and internationally.
