Porn Pedallers are raising money for British Heart Foundation - and have support of Sir Chris Hoy

A team of pornstars will this Sunday take part in the British Heart Foundation’s London to Brighton cycle challenge with the aim of raising thousands of pounds for the charity.

Porn Pedallers brings together 30 people from the UK’s adult entertainment sector who are as passionate about riding bikes as they are at [don’t go there – ed] including Rebecca More – winner of a 2016 SHAFTA for MILF of the year – and Peter Oh Tool.

Headed up by Chris Ratcliff, owner of Television X, which along with VeriMe, .XXX, Spearmint Rhino, Xcreds, Kaizen XXX, Fanny Hunter and JoyBear Pictures sponsors the team, other members include Louise Kay, Sapphire Blue, Ava Austen, Brooklyn Blue, Studs and Pascal White.

And as we reported earlier this year, they have the support of one of the biggest names in cycling – six-time Olympic gold medallist, Sir Chris Hoy.

Formed at the end of last year, Porn Pedallers rode from London to Flanders in the spring for their first annual Spring Classic which included tackling the cobbled climb of the Kemmelberg, and they also plan to ride at Revolve 24 at Brands Hatch in September.

They add: “Team Porn Pedallers’ yellow jersey, plus some physical attributes not often associated with cycling, make the porn peloton hard to miss.”

So far, they’ve raised more than £2,000 for the British Heart Foundation ahead of Sunday’s ride – which takes place the weekend after Brighton hosted the World Naked Bike Ride, which could have made for an interesting juxtaposition. You can donate here.

While Porn Pedallers are all professionals in their industry, it’s a video featuring amateurs that’s been causing a bit of a stir online this week, with a group of mountain bikers in Ireland stumbling across a couple who were properly going at it.

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.

The "cobbled climb of the Kemmelberg"? I bet they never came that way before.

Looking at their website I would urge you not to get too excited. It's mostly rather unnatractive middle aged men in their team (or at least they are when they're wearing clothes).

I"ve seen people accuse road cc of posting clickbait before, but this is ridiculous.

Way to keep it classy and on point road cc.

Does no one at your company have any judgement at all, or are you such attention -seeking clowns that you need to post articles like this for attention?

I'm far from a prude, but this does nothing to further cycling's image; next time you post a plea for cyclists to be recognized and heard, remember this article.

What bullshit.

It certainly is clickbait but I don't think it's anything to get worked up about. Especially when you actually see what the porn pedallers actually look like...

Cheer up mate. God forbid anyone gets the impression that cyclists are capable of having a laugh too.

Agreed; rather read about this than another KSI event or "not guilty" outcome of a prosecution. OP should realise that any story involving bicycles is likely to get re-published here.

I quite like some of these more humorous items and I don't see how it impacts on cycling's image. All sorts of people enjoy cycling and although this isn't a classy article, it is highlighting people doing charity rides which is a good thing.

I'd imagine that this article will get lots of views, so it is showing good judgement by road.cc, at least commercially.

I don't think you should get so hung up on what these people do for a living, Judge people by their actions rather than who they are (which in this case is people having fun cycling and raising money for other people).

Maybe there was some confusion when someone said cyclists were very anal.

Raising money for the BHF - any chance of adding the sponsorship link to the article?  1
Apologies if it's there and I missed it!

Well done to 'em. Training for a London: Brighton BHF ride was what got me hooked on longer rides & into a club. The chap thinking this damages our reputation is, frankly, displaying the kind of snobbery that damages our reputation...
