Rider will be remembered at Newlands Corner where he collapsed during last week’s event

Cyclists are being invited to take part in a ride on Sunday to remember Kris Cook, who died last weekend of a heart attack while taking part in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100.

The ride will meet at Newlands Corner at 9am on Sunday August 17.

Kris had been taking part in the event with a group of friends including his partner Nicola Tait, with the pair aiming to raise money for Woking Hospice and Sam Beare Hospice.

His fundraising target was £500 but since last Sunday donations have poured in to his Just Giving page, with the amount raised now standing at almost £40,000.

Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
