On 4 August 2013 Mosaic’s National Director Jonathan Freeman will be riding 100 miles on his bike in support of Mosaic and The Children’s Trust in the inaugural Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 charity bike ride.
Speaking of his support for Mosaic and The Children’s Trust, Jonathan said: “My role at Mosaic is all about supporting and inspiring young people so they become the best they can be. This bike ride is, for me, about supporting young people from all walks of life – from the communities Mosaic supports as well as children with serious injuries and health needs supported by The Children’s Trust”.
The Children’s Trust is a national charity providing rehabilitation, care and education to children with acquired brain injury, multiple disabilities and complex health needs.
Celebrating the legacy for cycling created by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 will start in the new Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then follow a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside.
Speaking of the ride, Jonathan said: “It’s going to be a tough ride. This route became famous during the Olympics and I’m training hard to make sure I do it justice! Bradley Wiggins I am not, but I do feel passionately about the work of Mosaic and The Children’s Trust which will give me the incentive to keep going when it gets tough.”
Jonathan’s ride is being sponsored by: The COSARAF Foundation, CareTech Holdings PLC, Child & Child solicitors and Roast Restaurant.
Farouq Sheikh, Executive Chairman of CareTech Holdings PLC and Trustee of the COSARAF Charitable Foundation said: “there is no greater way to celebrate the legacy of the Olympics than supporting two fantastic charities which are doing crucial work in supporting some of the most vulnerable children living in the most deprived communities in the UK. We wish Jonathan all the best on his bike ride.”
Iqbal Wahhab, founder of Roast Restaurant in London’s iconic Borough Market said “I am a long-standing supporter of Mosaic and we are delighted to support Jonathan’s ride for two such worthy causes. Knowing how much he likes our breakfasts, I suspect he may be doing this to work up an appetite for another visit to Roast!”
Jonathan aims to raise £5,000 in support of both of his chosen organisations. As part of our fundraising efforts for Jonathan’s ride we are inviting bids for two VIP tickets to see Kings of Leon in the Sky Suite at the O2 in London on Thursday 13 June 2013.

Read Jonathan’s training diary on the Mosaic blog: “As a fully-signed up ‘mamil’ (Middle-aged man in lycra), I thought it was about time to step up from the weekend bike rides with friends of 20 or so miles and set myself a real challenge…”
