Join 25,000 other cycling enthusiasts for the capital’s biggest cycling event- RideLondon-Surrey. The limb-testing 100mile route celebrates the legacy for cycling created by the success of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games.

Starting in Queen Elizabeth Park, the ride takes place through closed roads winding through the English countryside and into Surrey, before finishing in The Mall in central London once again. The route was made famous in 2012 by the world’s best cyclists, and five years later it still proves one of the most popular cycling events open to the public in the UK.

There’s no doubt that this event is not for the faint hearted, but the sense of achievement you will get both from completing the race and raising your target of £500 will make it all well worth it.

If you don’t believe us, take it from 2015, 2016 & 2017 participant Dom, who enjoyed the event so much he came back for more!

“This event is incredible, and don’t worry if you feel daunted. I went from being a complete Sportive novice to finishing the course in a shade under 7 hours, the ride made me keen to take on more challenges like this in the future. If I can motivate any readers to take part, it is definitely a case of ‘if I can do it, you definitely can.

My advice would be to go slowly when you need to-take in the amazing experience of the city becoming your own personal cycle lane!”
