The team which consists of 8 members so far aims to raise over £5,000 for Loveworks, the Reigate charity which helps to improve the lives of the most vulnerable groups of people in the local area.
The team include a range of varied cycling abilities and for the riders the 100 mile challenge means different things, from a bucket list challenge to proof of a return to health after injury.
Meet two of the riders:
Craig Weston, 41, originally from Stockport has lived in Reigate for 7 years with his wife and two daughters. Craig works in the City for a financial software development company.
After a back operation in January, for Craig taking part in RLS100 is an opportunity to focus on training to get back to full strength. Before his operation Craig had been cycling for two years and completed the Reigate Rouleur Sportive in 2014, a 62 mile ride.

Graeme Leonard, after a serious accident in January 2015 had to have 100 stitches in his face and his cycling was impacted. He is now keen to get back into riding and is looking forward to completing his goal of riding 100 miles for a local charity, especially after having to defer a place in the London to Paris ride because of the accident.
