Dear Editor

With many of our New Year resolutions a distant memory, now could be a good time to set a new challenge for the year ahead, to help you get back on track. And at vet charity PDSA, we’re urging keen cyclists to take on the Prudential RideLondon.

The 100-mile cycling challenge around London and Surrey provides a perfect opportunity to help kick-start a year of health and fitness, and raise funds for sick and injured pets.

 PDSA is the UK’s leading veterinary charity, and by signing up to the cycling challenge, fundraisers will be able to make a difference to the lives of thousands of pets and their owners.

When owners have nowhere else to turn, PDSA is there. But it costs £60 million every year to provide our vital lifeline and we’re asking cyclists to help us continue our life-saving work. For cyclists who have secured their own place, we would be delighted for you to join Team PDSA on 16 August 2020 to help us raise awareness of the life-saving work our vets and nurses undertake every day.

We also have a limited number of charity places available, where you will receive fantastic support for your epic challenge. For anyone interested in cycling RideLondon for PDSA and helping us continue to treat pets and change lives please go to

On behalf of poorly pets, thank you.
