London to Brighton Highlights

Route overview

On this iconic London to Brighton Cycle Ride, leave the buzz of the city behind and join thousands of your fellow cyclists as you face the challenge of a 55-mile journey on two wheels from the heart of London to the buzzing Brighton seafront!

Riders will make their way through the idyllic English countryside putting their pedals to the test on Ditchling Beacon before gliding down to Brighton to cross the finish line and celebrate their success.

On your way, stop at the picturesque village of Turners Hill for lunch, stay hydrated at water stops along the route of this challenging cycle ride and take advantage of our stationary and roaming mechanical support to keep you on course to the finish line.

Bike and coach transport will be available back from Brighton to south London at an extra cost of £35 which can be booked upon registering or prior to the event. Local train services in Brighton will only permit a limited amount of bikes so we strongly advise you to arrange to be picked up from Brighton or book the bike and coach transport (subject to availability).


The London to Brighton cycle ride is challenging but achievable. In order to maximise your enjoyment, you do need to train and get out on your bike before the ride!
