In glorious sunshine, the 3rd year of Ride London took place at the beginning of August. According to Boris Johnson it was ‘a true celebration of the humble bicycle and everything our great city has to offer.’ And of course, CEMEX was there.
A CEMEX Aggregate tipper out of Angerstein was one of 3 vehicles used by the Met Police to highlight the dangers around large goods vehicle, in an Exchanging Places event. Nearly 1,200 people, many of whom were cyclists, got into the cab of one of the 3 vehicles. As always, many cyclists were amazed at what could and couldn’t be seen from the cab.
The Saturday was a family day and cyclists could enjoy the freedom of riding around the 10-mile traffic-free route in central London, a perfect way to see some of our treasured landmarks. On Sunday more than 25,000 amateur cyclists took on the RideLondon – Surrey 100-mile challenge, cycling past Frensham Great Pond and Common, Boxhill, Thorpe Park, Watts Gallery and many other beautiful parts of Surrey.
It was a great event supported by celebrities such as Martin Johnson, Matt Dawson, Sally Gunnell, Sophie Raworth, Tim Foster, Sam Bailey and many others.
