Four-time Tour de France Winner Chris Froome was joined by gold medal winner David Weir at the Windsor finish line of Palace to Palace, to cheer on the riders taking part in our fundraising event.

Also taking part was BBC’s Carol Kirkwood, who joined the ride for the fourth time, and Mel Giedroyc from The Great British Bake Off. Both of which who enjoyed taking part in a picturesque cycling route from Buckingham Palace to Windsor Castle, taking in some of London’s most iconic sites including Richmond Park and Hampton Court Palace, while raising money to support young people to improve their lives.

Chris Froome said:
It was a pleasure to support all the riders and fundraisers taking part in the Palace to Palace ride today. Thousands of cyclists have put in hard work training and raising vital funds for The Prince’s Trust. I want to say congratulations to all the fundraisers and cyclists, as their efforts will make a crucial difference to the lives of disadvantaged young people around the country.
David Weir added:
It was fantastic to see all the cyclists take to the roads today in support of The Prince’s Trust. I know a lot of hard work has gone into preparing for the ride, so I would like to say well done to all the riders who took part. The funds Palace to Palace has raised will make a vital difference to the lives of young people, supporting them to overcome barriers reach their goals.

Palace to Palace, supported by Capita, is the flagship fundraising event for The Prince’s Trust, and has raised over £3.5 million for The Trust over the past 12 years.

Shona Nichols, Executive Director, from Capita said: “As proud sponsors of the Palace to Palace ride for two years, it was great to see more than 100 Capita colleagues and friends get back on their bikes to raise valuable funds for The Prince’s Trust. We’re also proud to share that a few of us achieved completing the 45-mile route on a pedibus – a big challenge, but for a great cause!”
