Ride The Night 2018 has attracted incredible support from thousands of women and we’re overwhelmed by your enthusiasm year upon year, challenge upon challenge, to saddle up and support the Women V Cancer charities.
Just to be clear, every single one of our Dream Challenges participants is a hero - and if it were up to us, you’d all be famous!
We’ve had a few of you asking in the Ride The Night Facebook Group which amazing celebrities are coming on which night, so here’s who you can expect to see:
We mentioned in our last email that the wonderful Olympic Gold Medallist, Amy Williams, is joining us for Ride The Night. How she’s juggling her training along with presenting the Winter Olympics 2018 on the BBC and looking after her 11-month-old son, is something of an art.
See her interview here or visit her website here.
Blogging about life, beauty, dogs travel and fashion, Pandora Christie is an absolute gem and we’re thrilled to have her joining us on 5 May ride. If you don’t know her from her hugely entertaining blog, you’ll recognise her from the radio as Kiss FM and Kisstory presenter.
She has moved us beyond words with her quote, which really sums up what Women V Cancer is all about:
“I’m taking part in Ride the Night because we CAN beat this together. I know far too many people who have had their lives touched by cancer and this is why this means so much to me as it has become scarily close to all of us.” - Pandora Christie
We’re so glad to have the support of the overwhelmingly inspiring blogger, Lauren Cara. She lays it all out flat on her website, what she’s learned about health and wellness, drawing upon her knowledge and experience as a medical doctor, stage IV cancer patient, yoga teacher, meditation student, psychology graduate and general science-geek.
Check out her blog here.
London Met Police’s incredible detective, who often speaks on TV and is featured in the News, has taken part in several Ride The Night events. We cannot be more pleased that she's back for another as an ambassador, bringing her smiling face and friends with her!
Follow her on Twitter.
A close friend of Amy Williams and Former GB Modern Pentathlete, Katy Burke is now a primary school teacher and so probably bags the most motivating teacher award! Dabbling in triathlon and baking in her free time, she’s also made the team at Women V Cancer super happy by signing up to Ride The Night on 5 May!
Follow her on Twitter.
Silver Medallist in Modern Pentathlon in the 2008 Beijing Olympics and also buddies with Amy Williams, the fabulous Heather Fell will be back on her bike on 5 May! Besides standing up for our amazing cause, these days she keeps a vlog on Youtube giving tips on training and triathlons.
Follow her on Twitter.
Also known as the "Squat Bot" - what a name - is forever motivating. With a blog packed full of fitness training tips, she’s a fantastic personal trainer and self-proclaimed social media nerd - see for yourself by following her on Instagram. Needless to say, we’re delighted to have her coming down from Manchester to join the ride on 26!

Miss England 2012 is joining Ride The Night! This stunning fitness model and TV presenter is not just a pageant hero but a real hero, joining the Women V Cancer cause with her mum and the determination to stand together to beat cancer.
We're so moved by her words:
“I’ve decided to Ride The Night with my mum to help her keep her New Years’ resolution of ‘move more’ and because we all need to stand together to beat cancer.” - Charlotte Holmes
Lifestyle and wellness influencer, Lottie Murphy’s blog posts always bring a smile to our faces. Whether she’s blogging about her love of Bath, giving training tips or just general life advice, they’re always an excellent read and her love of life is infectious. We’re really looking forward to having her on the cycle!
Brilliant lifestyle and current affairs journalist for the Huffington post, we’re brimming with excitement to meet Amy Packham when she joins us for Ride The Night on 26 May to support the three invaluable Women V Cancer charities, Breast Cancer Care, Ovarian Cancer Action and Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust.
Exciting announcement: Olivia Wayne, the fantastic Sky Sports News Presenter with a heart of gold, is leading a warm-up for Ride The Night on 26 May! A perfect way to kick off the challenge!
