BHF London to Brighton Cycle route

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).

    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 London to Brighton Cycle 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
