London to Brighton

The London to Brighton Cycle Ride is a mass-participation cycle ride covering the 54 miles from south London to Madeira Drive on Brighton sea front.

In 2018 the ride will take place on the 16th September and thousands of riders are expected to take part.

All you need to do to take part is raise £150 for your favourite charity and pay a registration fee – in return you will receive ALL of the following:

Free buffet lunch
This takes place at 29 miles in the picturesque village of Turners Hill. You can eat as much as you like from our delicious pastas to our ever popular Carrot Cake.

Free water stops
These take place at 21 miles in the morning and 45 miles at the top of Ditchling Beacon.

Full mechanical support
We have four stationary mechanic points (at the start, at the morning and afternoon water points, and at lunch) but if you’re unlucky enough to experience difficulties in between those points we also have roaming mechanics too – just give us a call!

Fully signed route
No need to be looking at your map – our route is fully sign-posted so that you can keep your eyes on the road and enjoy the wonderful surrounding countryside!

Pre-event support
Just call our friendly London to Brighton team who will be able to help you out with all of your questions including fundraising and training advice

Bike and coach transport back to London
Bike and coach transport will be available back from Brighton to south London at an extra cost of £30 which can be booked upon registering or prior to the event.

Your bicycle will be securely transported back to the start point in south London where it will be returned to you upon arrival.

Local train services in Brighton will only permit a limited amount of bikes so we strongly advise you arrange to be picked up from Brighton or book our bike and coach transport (subject to availability).

Highly popular event Facebook page
Meet fellow cyclists ahead of the trip and if you’re on your own you will probably find other solo cyclists to cycle with! Our Facebook page is also a great place to gets lots of tips and advice on the ride from more experienced cyclists.
