London to Brighton Night Ride
Saturday 12 - 13 July 2014
Reaching the top of Devil's Dyke after sunrise and seeing the road go downhill to Brighton was exhilarating.
Our fight against heart disease never sleeps.
Join the nightshift as we ride from Tower Bridge to Brighton Beach
in our London to Brighton Night Ride.
From the buzz of the city, we'll pedal hard through 60 miles of
sleepy country lanes and defeat Devil's Dyke before descending into
a triumphant sunrise by the sea.

Each team member will need to
register individually online. There are two questions which
you'll need to respond to in order to join a team. One will ask for
the Team Name and the other will ask for the Team Leader's Name.

Be a life-saver
Your registration fee helps to cover the cost of the event, but
it's your fundraising that will transform the lives of people
living with heart and circulatory conditions.
For over 50 years our pioneering research has led to the
discoveries of vital treatments that are changing the fight against
heart disease. But with coronary heart disease still being the UK's
single biggest killer, this fight never sleeps. Join our fight and
help us raise over £500,000 to power our life-saving research and
end the suffering caused by heart disease.
