Well done to Ride London 100 riders!

Ride London 100

A huge well done to everyone that took part in the Prudential Ride London 100 at the weekend. Despite the early start the weather was fantastic, and amazing to see so many people lining the streets of London cheering along the riders. We had our own cheering zone by the VIrgin Money store in Dorking too

For all of you who were riding for charity, we’ve  4 simple things you should do with your on-line fundraising today to help you smash your fundraising target.

We’d love to hear how it went for you, let us know by leaving a comment below.

Add a new photo to your page

Now you’ve completed the challenge, nothing quite shows ‘I’ve done it’ like a photo of you taking part.

Whether it’s a snap of you before you set off, out on the ride, or proudly wearing the medal at the end, it’ll let all your supporters know that you’ve completed the ride. There’s a little guide on how to add photos to your page if you need it too.

Update your page with how it went

Take a few moments to update the content of your fundraising page, share your experiences.

Change the information on your page, let your supporters know how the ride went, what time you did and how it feels to have completed the ride. If there were any close calls, or anecdotes from the ride pop them in too, along with where the toughest part of the course was for you.

Drop your friends and family an email

Send a quick email around to everyone you know – including people who’ve already donated.

Let them know how much you’ve raised so far, what time you did, and how it went, and don’t forget to include a link to your page. You might get some repeat donations.

Don't forget to Social Network it!

If you tweet, Facebook, Google+ or Linked in, don’t forget to update your status with your newly refreshed page, and add any extra photos from the big day as well. The official hashtag (if you haven’t seen it yet) is #PruRL2013.

And did you know you can use hashtags on Facebook now too?

    Well that’s a nice idea, but you’re really rather rubbing salt in the wound aren’t you. I’m one of the many that has been unable to do a page update since last week, with no sign yet of a solution from your “IT team”. Added to the unscheduled day’s shutdown the previous week, I’m afraid I’m left seriously unimpressed. I think these disastrous failures have cost my cause hundreds of pounds, and that will be the same for everyone affected.
