Re-discover your sense of adventure and conquer the iconic London to Brighton 1 day cycle ride.
The London to Brighton bike ride is probably Britain's best known 1 day cycle ride. Starting in the city and ending at the beach, it crosses the beautiful Surrey Hills, Southern England's newest National Park and the awe-inspiring Sussex Downs range of chalk hills.
Our version is a little different.
Starting in Richmond to avoid the inevitable battle through South London traffic, we'll use country lanes (almost) throughout. No major A or B roads to spoil the serenity. But we don't take ourselves too seriously and weekends are suppose to be fun, right? So we'll enjoy a lavish lakeside lunch in the Surrey Hills on the way down, celebration drinks in one of Brighton's best outdoor beer gardens after the ride and, for those seeking a symbolic end to the experience, there'll be time to dip your toes in the sea at Brighton!
