Brake were a Charity of the Year on the London to Brighton Cycle Ride 2018:
We had spaces on the London to Brighton Cycle Ride in 2017 and 2018. Over the two years, an incredible £25,000 was raised for Brake!
The challenge started in South London, went through Mitcham, Carshalton, Chipstead, Banstead, Haywards Heath and finally on to Brighton having completed 54 miles!
Brake fundraiser Mike Stockton, who is senior asset control manager at Royal Mail and fleet safety specialist, says: "Road safety is a big part of my day to day life due to the nature of my role at work and from the first time I met the team at Brake I was impressed by their work and enthusiasm. When I thought of undertaking the London to Paris Bike Ride, Brake were my first choice to fundraise for. It was a great motivator during the long days in the saddle knowing that money I raised was going to such a great charity. The importance of the work they do was brought to life when one of the cyclists in our group was in a collision with a car on the first day and had to be airlifted to hospital."
