The young volunteers from the Mayor of London programme were fantastic, very helpful and integrated well with spectators, helping to build a great atmosphere. They were happy to help wherever they were needed and were really enthusiastic about the event. Volunteer supervisor, RideLondon


My experiences gained through Team London have really inspired me to help others. Since the programme started in 2012 I have enjoyed every single event I have volunteered at. I strongly recommend this programme.
