The world’s greatest festival of cycling returns on Sunday 29 May 2022, with a new format, exciting new routes and a new partnership with Essex County Council.

The RideLondon-Essex 100 is a unique opportunity to ride 100 miles on traffic-free roads through the heart of London and neighbouring Essex. The event will start on Victoria Embankment and finish to rapturous applause at the iconic Tower Bridge, with 65 miles through some of Essex’s most beautiful countryside and villages in between. The full route will be announced in early 2022.

Slower cyclists can enjoy a challenging ride while faster riders will relish the opportunity to pit themselves against the country’s top amateurs.

The RideLondon 100 will start in wave starts from 06:00 and participants will need to be able to finish the 100 miles within around 8 hours in order to finish safely.

As part of this festival of cycling weekend, Essex will also host stages one and two of the new three-day road race, part of the UCI Women’s WorldTour, which will be held from 27 to 29 May, and is once again set to attract the world’s best teams and riders.

Please Note: You will need your own bicycle and cycling helmet to take part.
