Ride the Night London routes

Starting and finishing at the Royal Windsor Racecourse, you’ll pass loads of iconic landmarks, make loads of friends and help save and support the lives of people facing cancer right now.


Those who have tackled the Ride the Night event in the past will find the 100km route very similar to previous years.

This circular route starts and ends at the Royal Windsor Racecourse. Riding past Westminster Abbey, the London Eye, the West-End theatres and many more iconic landmarks, this course will give you a tour of London under the night lights.


While the 50km ride starts at the Royal Windsor Racecourse, you'll find yourself gliding over the finish line in the midst of central London.

Don't worry about finishing in London though, a free shuttle bus will take you and your bike back to Windsor after your triumphant night of racing.

Sponsorship Funding:

Participants pay a non-refundable registration fee of £45 which is used to secure your place on the event.

There’s no minimum sponsorship target or deadline, but please aim for £100 or more, so that your challenge can make a difference for people affected by cancer.

The money you raise is split evenly between the three charities and will go a long way to help them continue their vital work in a critical time...

£30 could buy a bottle of specialist dye to stain cancer cells, so that Ovarian Cancer Action’s researchers can study them with a microscope.

£100 can enable Breast Cancer Now to send out another 1,000 leaflets to GPs to promote breast checking and inform about the signs and symptoms of breast cancer.

£500 will enable Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust to provide a weekend of training to two new Helpline volunteers supporting hundreds of women.

Join the 500 club!
If you raise £500 or more by 29th April 2021, you will get a free official 500 club cycling jersey.
