Route information
Weekender Route
Start/Finish Location: Lee Valley Showground
Distance: 156.9 miles
Climbing: 7,384ft
The weekender route starts by heading clockwise, south from Lee Valley Showground, you join the top section of the London 2012 Olympic Road Race route. Then you cycle through Central London along the Cycle Superhighway taking in the iconic sights – the London Eye, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.
After clearing the Capital, you are faced with the stunning climbs and descents of the North Downs before cycling west to Windsor Great Park. Here you can unwind and celebrate the day’s achievements at our Festival Basecamp.
Following a night’s rest, it is time to get back in the saddle for the slightly shorter day back via the Chiltern Hills and ancient Epping Forest. This challenging route is guaranteed to make it a weekend to remember.
Ultra Route
Start/Finish Location: Lee Valley Showground
Distance: 156.9 miles
Climbing: 7,384ft
Setting off early Saturday morning from Lee Valley Showground, you will take in the famous London landmarks before leaving the urban cityscape behind you and venturing into the green fields and testing climbs of the North Wessex Downs. Once through Windsor, it is onto the Chilterns to conquer more incredible countryside before winding your way back through Epping forest to celebrate your momentous achievement in a blaze of glory back at Lee Valley.
Southern Route
Start Location: Lee Valley Showground
Finish Location: Windsor Racecourse
Distance: 88.4 miles
Climbing: 4,419ft
Cycling south from Lee Valley, the route heads into Central London along the Cycle Superhighway. From here you will be treated to some of the most iconic London landmarks including the London Eye, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.
After leaving the Capital, the scenery suddenly changes as you tackle the stunning climbs and descents of the North Downs. Once these have been overcome, you cycle west to Windsor Racecourse where you will be greeted by the amazing sights and sounds of our famous Festival Basecamp.
Northern Route
Start Location: Windsor Racecourse
Finish Location: Lee Valley Showground
Distance: 68.5 miles
Climbing: 3,139ft
As you leave the sights and sounds of the Windsor Basecamp behind, the rolling hills of The Chilterns open up in front of you. You head through idyllic local villages – including Marlow and Princes Risborough – before being treated to some of the very best countryside riding through sheltered woodland and along rolling hills.
The last leg of the stage ventures through the historic Epping Forest, then it’s a downhill dash back into London where a warm welcome and a cold beer awaits.

Is the ULTRA race at Dulux London Revolution Cycle for elite cyclists only?
The ULTRA isn’t designed to be the fastest. It is the ultimate challenge of endurance and a chance to showcase the best city sights and surrounding countryside. The minimum average speed you can travel for the ULTRA event is 12 miles per hour. This is to ensure you finish safely within the timeframes of the event.

If I'm camping at the Dulux London Revolution Cycle, do I need my own tent and sleeping mat?
No, your tent will be pitched ready and waiting for you when you arrive at basecamp and you will collect your sleeping mat when you check in to tent allocation, however you will need to bring your own sleeping bag. Tents are 2 man pop-up tents (allocated one per person).
