The Big Bike Ride1 Bridgefoot, Wetherby LS22 6RG, UK

The 2019 Big Bike Ride will start at 9 a.m. (approximately) on Sunday 12 May 2019. Starting times will be confirmed closer to the date.

From Westminster Abbey to Islip through royal parks, and country lanes, this is a unique and beautiful 70-mile route from central London to the ancient village of Islip in Oxfordshire, the birthplace of Edward the Confessor.

Starting outside Westminster Abbey, you will ride through Hyde Park and the Georgian splendour of Holland Park. Emerging near Wembley you tackle Harrow on the Hill and emerge from London directly into the beautiful, rolling, Chiltern hills. With the woods and winding lanes behind you, the route takes the Phoenix Trail, an old railway line converted to a cycle path, across the Oxfordshire plain to Thame, and then its just a short hop to the finish at Islip Village Hall.

Your registration fee covers administration, refreshments both en route and at the finish, and free physiotherapy for riders. Costs are subsidised by our sponsors, and the profits will benefit the two organising charities (Friends of Dr Souths School, and St Nicholas Church).

Some first-aid support will be available on the ride, and mechanical support will be provided en route.

Route downloads will be available to registered riders in TCX and GPX format.

This is a fundraising event, and we strongly encourage all riders to seek sponsorship, either for a charitable cause of your choice or for the two organising charities.

The Big Bike Ride welcomes those who cycle regularly as well as those looking simply for a fun family day out. There will be refreshment stops and support en route, a party atmosphere at the finish, and a commemorative gift. All riders under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Challenge Ride 2: Haworth, Hebden Bridge and Widdop Moor11 Regent St, Hebden Bridge HX7 7DG, UK

Our road cycling tours are for keen road cyclists of all abilities and we offer circular routes staying in different locations each evening as well as tours and day events based in our home town of Ilkley.

The rides are an exclusive individual guided and supported experience similar to a sportive ride in that there is a set route, but are not timed. What you get over and above a typical sportive is a pre-ride bike check, a support vehicle and team mechanic, the benefit of riding in a small group with your own dedicated ride leader and lunch.
