Event information

Join the ride of your life on this iconic city to coast challenge – and help us reach the 1 in 10 people worldwide who still don't have access to clean water.

Perfect if you're new to cycling or a regular weekend rider, London to Brighton is an iconic route, taking you out of the city, through the countryside, to the south coast.

There's support along the way and a beachside event village at the finish line, ready for you to put your feet up for a well-earned rest!

Register directly with the London to Brighton Bike Ride organisers, and fundraise as much as you can for WaterAid.
