Ride London 100, the world’s greatest festival of cycling, kicked off in 2013 and was designed to create a lasting legacy of the 2012 London Olympic Games.

In 2012, Arran Linton-Smith received his autism diagnosis. Since 2013, Arran has taken on the 100-mile course every single year which included a successful Guinness world record attempt in 2014 - when Arran broke the record for the most amount of company logos on a single piece of clothing with an impressive 106 whilst raising £1000s in the process!

I personally choose to ride for the National Autistic Society because I really appreciate the support that I have received from the charity, particularly from their helpline, since I first received my diagnosis back in 2012.

Arran is a keen cyclist and has taken part in a number of memorable cycles throughout the world including:

  • Alberta Highway 93, Canada
  • Manali – Leh Highway, The Himalayas
  • Tuscany, Italy
  • John O’Groats to Lands’ End
  • Khardung La, India. One of the highest, motorable roads in the world 

Arran will be going for his 7th straight Ride London in 2019 as part of Team Autism and will be working closely with the events team with preparations for the event including leading the official Team Autism, Ride London practice ride.
