A 55-mile charity ride from Clapham Common to Brighton seafront with over 4,000 cyclists taking part for 100's of charities.
Take on Britain's best-known one-day cycle route - wake up in London, get on your bike, end up on Brighton's beautiful pebbly beach.
From the greenery of Clapham Common, you'll ride along a host of lazy country lanes through gorgeous villages, before reaching the uphill challenge that is Ditchling Beacon, a mile-long climb to the top of the South Downs with extraordinary views, before the downhill descent onto the pebbly Brighton seafront.

From tandems to hybrids, all types of bicycles are welcome on this ride. The 55-mile route is suitable for all abilities (a little training is recommended), the infamous Ditchling Beacon is the only serious climb.
Once you've finished your ride why not spend the afternoon exploring Brighton? Marvel at the iconic Royal Pavilion, head up the British Airways i360 observation tower or visit the Brighton Museum & Art Gallery.
