Please Note: All 2024 places have now been allocated.
The world’s greatest festival of cycling returns on Sunday 28th May, with a new format, exciting new route 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 finishing on the iconic Tower Bridge in London.
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.
Please Note: You will need your own bicycle and cycling helmet to take part.
LOW fundraising target of £550 and just £25 registration fee! *

Brief history of RideLondon
RideLondon was established by the Mayor of London in 2013 as a legacy event from the London 2012 Olympics, which saw Team GB dominate the medal table in cycling. RideLondon has grown to feature 100,000 riders of all ages and abilities enjoying a range of different mass participation challenges.
