Siblings who spin!

Pippa Middleton and brother James Middleton completed the London to Brighton Bike Ride on Sunday, traveling 54 miles from England’s capital to the coastal town.

James, 28, and Pippa, 31, the younger siblings of Princess Kate, competed in the race for the British Heart Foundation, for which Pippa serves as an ambassador.

The event, in its 40th year, drew around 22,000 cyclists according to British newspaper The Argus.

The Middletons beamed as they completed the race, wearing matching red Heart Foundation tops and cycling shorts for the lengthy ride.

“As a keen cyclist, I am thrilled to be involved in this milestone year of the London to Brighton Bike Ride,” told the research organization earlier this year. “This event is testament to the fact that cycling is such a great inclusive sport that everyone can enjoy and at the same time, through the money raised, it continues to help millions of people affected by heart disease.”

Both Middletons are no strangers to being in a bicycle seat.

Just over a year ago, Pippa and James traveled across the United States with a team of eight cyclists for Race Across America, which also benefited the British Heart Foundation.

The pair biked 3,000 miles across 12 American states in eight days, starting in San Diego, California, and ending in Annapolis, Maryland.

Pippa is also busy being a doting aunt to Princess Kate and Prince William‘s son, Prince George, and their baby girl Princess Charlotte.

She helped stock her new niece’s layette with adorable baby clothes bought at one of Kate’s favorite London children’s wear boutiques, Amaia.
