The siblings took part in a 54-mile bike ride from London to Brighton earlier today in honor of the British Heart Foundation. Pippa spoke to reporters shortly after completing the charity race, which is in its 40th year, about her second time riding in the lengthy ride. "This event is a testament to the fact that cycling is such an inclusive sport that everyone can enjoy," the ambassador for the charity explained. "Through the money raised, the BHF can continue to help the millions of people affected by coronary heart disease—the U.K's single biggest killer."
The news of Pippa and James' participation in the race was announced back in January of this year, and Kate Middleton's sister opened up about why the cause is so important to her. "I was shocked to learn that nearly three times more women die from coronary heart disease than breast cancer," she shared. "I'm passionate about raising awareness amongst women of this killer disease and I look forward to working with the BHF to highlight to women the risks of heart disease and importantly, how they can reduce them."
After a weekend spent watching the tennis and completing the London to Brighton bike ride, it was back to work for Pippa Middleton today. The Duchess of Cambridge's 31-year-old sister was spotted taking a stroll near her Chelsea office and enjoying the warm June sunshine. Dressed in a low-key striped top, a leather jacket and a pair of faded skinny jeans, the writer and nutritionist peered intently at her mobile phone as she walked.
