Route information
The route covers 55 miles from south London to Madeira Drive on the Brighton seafront.
Once out of London, competitors will predominantly cycle along quiet country lanes passing through Mitcham, Carshalton, Chipstead, Banstead and Haywards Heath before taking on the challenge that is Ditchling Beacon – a mile long climb to the top of the South Downs where you will be rewarded with amazing views and a water break!
From here, you will cycle downhill the last few miles onto Brighton seafront.
At mile 30, just after the midpoint, entrants will be treated to a free lunch buffet of hot and cold food at Tulley's Farm (with vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free options too).

Thanks For giving and sharing valuable information regarding cycling race. This is the nice article to me and our people.
Did the race in 2019
I done this last year and personally I think last year was better final stretch this year was dangerous I understand there was another event and protest but didn't seem as organised medal was same as last year but without year bit disappointing for 10 year anniversary
Did the race in 2017
This is a really great ride and a classic for London based cyclists. Totally accessible for anyone but still fun for people who want to bomb it. Definitely an excellent way to spend a weekend
