The 5th Tour De Salah was back for another year on Saturday 29th September. With over 120 cyclists across four different distances participants had a great day. Cyclists ranged from the most experienced riders to families with children as young as 6 years.
For the first time ever we had two starting routes for the 15km; Palmers Green Mosque, MCEC, and Hounslow Mosque. Hounslow Mosque were also a lunch stop for the both the 100km and 60km rides and with the free Dr Bike sessions for the public too it was a great atmosphere.
From the starting point at Palmers Green Mosque, MCEC, throughout the rest of the day there was a feeling of excitement and apprehension amongst the riders. Riding in the glorious sunshine around London all of cyclists had an incredible day with their friends and families.
“Really fun time. Very well organised. Definitely recommend to others.” Rizwan Badr, 100km cyclist
An event like this would not have been possible without the continued support of our sponsors and all the London councils involved: Haringey, Hounslow and Waltham Forest. A special thanks goes to all of the Mosques, particularly Hounslow and our venue partner Palmers Green Mosque, MCEC, who made this years event so special.
“Thank you to all of the organisers for making it a great day. Thank you for leading us with such professionalism.” Hafeez, 60km cyclist
