Organisers of the annual London to Monaco bike ride in aid of the Blue Marine Foundation have announced that a virtual London to Monaco fundraising cycle event is to take place in September.
It comes after the 2020 edition of the annual event was cancelled due to international travel restrictions and safety concerns due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The virtual cycle will now take place from September 1 - 30 and task riders to track their progress against other participating cyclists using the Strava cycling app. Cyclists will have 30 days to complete the 1,033 km distance from London to Monaco.
Organisers revealed they will be awarding prizes to individual and collective efforts, as well as hosting virtual events throughout the month.
Registration for the virtual L2M challenge is free and riders are still encouraged to fundraise as much as possible for the Blue Marine Foundation.
