The London to Brighton Cycle Ride is a mass-participation event covering the 54 miles from Clapham Common in London to Madeira Drive on Brighton sea front, with over 4,000 riders expected to take part.
Once out of London you will predominantly cycle along quiet lanes passing through Mitcham, Carshalton, Chipstead, Banstead and Haywards Heath before taking on the challenge that is Ditchling Beacon - a mile long climb to the top of the South Downs where you will be rewarded with amazing views and a water break! From there it’s downhill for the last few miles onto Brighton sea front.
