Marcus Mellor and Liam Adams from The Energy Check, will be taking part in the closed-road event on Sunday 4 August 2019. The route starts in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Stratford before heading through the capital and into the Surrey countryside. With leg-testing climbs and a route made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics. The cyclists will come back in to London for a spectacular finish on The Mall.
Marcus Mellor, Corporate Partnerships Manager, The Energy Check, says: “Liam and I are absolutely delighted to be representing the Leyton Orient Trust to support the great work the Trust does in East London. As a partner of Leyton Orient, The Energy Check is committed to supporting the Club to achieve its goals not just on the pitch but in the local community, too. I would encourage anyone who can spare a few pounds to dig deep for this great cause; it will certainly help to motivate us as we take on the RideLondon challenge.’
Neil Taylor, Chief Executive, Leyton Orient Trust, said: “On behalf of the Trust I’d like to thank Marcus and Liam for choosing to fundraise for us, but also for spending their time training and taking part in the event. I took part in RideLondon last year so know first-hand how tough it is. I wish them the best of luck.”
Leyton Orient Trust is a charity that uses the power of sport to improve life chances. It works with Leyton Orient Football Club and other partners to provide education, health, wellbeing and community engagement programmes to the local boroughs of Waltham Forest, Tower Hamlets, Redbridge and Hackney.
