Route information
Kicking off early in South London, you’ll set off in staggered start waves for a stunning 100k route designed by Andy Cook Cycling. You’ll pedal through city, town and countryside and finally to the sea, taking in South East England like never before.
There will be several hills along the way making it a challenging ride, but no fear, Dream Challenges will set you up with a training plan. Plus, there'll be ample support and the route will be clearly signposted and fully marshalled, so there is no chance of you getting lost or left behind!
The 100k route, while not yet finalised, will include three feed stations, one of which includes a delicious packed lunch.
The finalised route will be sent to all participants once it has been confirmed.
Sponsorship Funding
Participants are asked to raise a minimum of £100 each for the Women V Cancer charities and to pay in £25 of this at least one month before the event to show their commitment to the charities. You will then have up until the event day on Sunday 3rd July, to reach your £100 target. If you don't reach it in time, please don't worry. Your fundraising page will remain live until three months after the event, so you can continue to fundraise once you have completed the ride.

The weather was horrendous possibly the worst I've ever ridden in but despite that the team was there to feed us and cheer us on.gives the cause a perspective.that no matter what the odds you get through it with a positive spirit and come out a better person at the end.and only when things are at their very worst do you see the beauty and strength of the doing things together
