Amy Williams MBE, 2010 Winter Olympics gold medallist, is switching from the Skeleton to the bike saddle to cycle 100km through the streets of London on 5 May 2018 as she participates in Women V Cancer Ride The Night.
The event, now in its fifth year, will see Amy join thousands of women cycling overnight through the capital city, raising valuable money for inspirational women’s cancer charities Breast Cancer Care, Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust and Ovarian Cancer Action.
Amy, who is part of the BBC commentary team for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, commented: “I’m really excited to be taking part in Ride The Night later this year and as well as taking in the sights of our beautiful city, help raise valuable money for some fantastic cancer charities. Almost everyone knows someone that has been affected by cancer and this is a great opportunity to show solidarity and get active for a worthy cause.”
Starting and finishing at Windsor Racecourse, the route will take riders around famous landmarks including Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace and more. The event has raised almost £5 million since its inception and record numbers look set to take to the start-line this year.
Calum Frampton, Founder of Dream Challenges, commented: “We’re delighted to have someone of Amy’s profile sign up to take part in Ride The Night. It’s inspiring for others to see people like Amy participate and we’re looking forward to working with her and hopefully making our fifth year the biggest and best yet.”
