Both Ruth and Claire share the same vision. They wanted to produce something fun, inclusive, challenging and rewarding for participants whilst making change for worthy causes.

Ruth Hockman 

Founder / Director

Ruth is a self confessed addict! Spinning her way through six to eight classes per week claiming they keep her sane... Hmmmmm...


Ride And Raise was born out of a passion for spin however her previous experience working on large scale events, community projects and fundraising lends itself to ensure each Ride And Raise event is seamlessly executed.



"Amazing event run by incredible people.  Thank you so much for doing this and funding over a day of research"

Claire Agathou

Founder / Programming Director

Claire is a GP by day and spin addict by (day and) night who regularly attends double and triple back to back classes five to six times per week.


When Claire is not with her stethoscope or on a spin bike she secures Ride And Raise’s leading instructors to programme and create great vibes and high energy at every event.



"You ladies are amazing!  What you have put together is incredible.  I'm pleased to be part of the Ride And Raise family helping to raise money and awareness for charity.  Thank you for asking Vibe to be involved."
