Why we need you
We need your help at our cheer point in Wimbledon on the day of the iconic RideLondon 100. You'll play a huge part in giving our fundraising cyclists the best event day experience possible, by cheering and motivating them to keep going to the finish line. You might be asked to help with setting up or packing down equipment, if you're able to. We have over 80 cyclists in #TeamScope and we want them to feel special and really proud, because the funds they've raised through their sponsorship will help us to achieve a society where all disabled people enjoy equality and fairness. Your cheering and support will make them proud of the amazing thing they’re doing for disabled people and their families.

Sunday 4 August 2019, Wimbledon cheer point – morning shift 9.30am to 1.00pm, afternoon shift 1.00pm to 5.00pm. Outside Virgin Active on Worple Road, 2 minutes’ from Wimbledon train station.
It would be fantastic if you’re able to volunteer for the full shift, but if you can’t then we’d be grateful for any time you are able to give.
