London to Brighton Cycle Ride – Ride for Rivers!

London to Brighton Cycle Ride – Ride for Rivers!

Clapham Common, The Pavement, London, United Kingdom

Join over 4,000 cyclists from city to sea, for the challenge of a lifetime and ride for rivers at this year’s London to Brighton cycle ride on September 17th 2017!

Leave the buzz of the city behind and join your fellow cyclists as you face the challenge of a 54 mile journey on two wheels on the iconic Do it for Charity London to Brighton Cycle! Thousands of people are expected to take part raising funds for their chosen charity and now this is your chance to be a part of it!

You will start the challenge from Clapham Common, travelling through idyllic country lanes as you ride though Mitcham, picturesque Carshalton, Chipstead, Banstead, Haywards Heath and finally finish on the colourful and bustling Brighton seafront!

No previous experience is required and with a bit of training, completing the event should easily be within your capabilities! Plus, with training and fitness advice from the helpful guides on the Do It For Charity website, we expect you will be saddle-ready in no time at all. The spirit of the event is ‘taking part’ not ‘winning’ so you can go as fast or as slow as you like!

All you need to do is pledge to raise £150 for The Rivers Trust and reserve your place here. Alternatively, you can register online at
