Ride 100km from London to Brighton and help beat cancer sooner.

Cycle through the night and take to the road by moonlight in this brand new challenge. The ride will begin at Smithfield's Market, Central London and will take you 100km to the scenic coast of Brighton. Whether you're a novice or a keen cyclist, this event is for you and we're looking forward to seeing you there.

In 2015 there are more ways than ever to be part of the London 2 Brighton Cycle, sign up to:

Day Ride (100km) - The day ride will start on the morning of the 27th between 7-9am and is ideal for those riders who want to see the scenic route in glorious day light.

Night Ride (100km) - The night ride will begin on the evening of the 26th and is best suited to those riders who come alive after dark.

There & Back (200km) - Think you are tough enough for the ultimate 200km cycle? The There & Back ride will start on Saturday night and will see you making your way to Brighton over night, before turning around and coming back to London. This is not one for the feint hearted.

Register as an individual or bring some friends along and join as a team.
