London to Brighton Cycle | 03 September 2011A massive congratulations to all the riders who took part in The Hunger Project’s first London to Brighton Cycle which took place on Saturday 03 September, 2011. Everyone made it to the finish (and brave Dan, aged 10 even managed the first 18miles pedalling furiously to keep up!).

A very special thanks to Michaela Marshall for following the peloton patiently in the ‘support vehicle’ for the entire journey, which took them eight hours (a target to beat for the next one!).

For all the photos visit our flickr pages.

The Peloton have raised an incredible £4985 a little short of their £5000 target but you can still show your support via the individual fundraising pages below or simply text a £10 donation via JustTextGiving.
