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.

Teams

Team work makes the dream work. With strength in numbers, we'll get closer to finding a cure for heart disease. Invite your friends, family and colleagues to join you and add to your pedal power.

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. And it's as simple as that.

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.

What to expect

We're experts at organising bike rides. Our highly experienced team will support you before, during and after the ride.

For expert tips, training schedules and advice, visit the training zone. Remember to build up your training gradually so you feel ready and confident on the night.

Our night time adventure will begin at 10pm on Saturday 12 July 2014 from Potter's Field Park next to Tower Bridge and finishes on Madeira Drive, Brighton Beach. The finish site will close at 9am on the Sunday.

The ride is 60 miles on road with 1,207 metres of climbing. The route will be clearly signposted and marshalled all the way. We'll have three rest stops where you can recharge, have a break and grab some fuel. You can also expect free water, first aid and mechanical support through the night.

You will be given emergency numbers on the night in case you need first aid or mechanical support. Every rider will be emailed a link to view the route map on Google as well as a link to download the GPX file a week before the ride. You will also be given an OS map of the route on the night, which includes all the basic details you need to follow the route including rest stops locations and timings.

A memento of your big night

Nothing says "I was there" like a souvenir tee and hoody. They were massively popular last year and stocks are limited. T-shirts are £12.50, Hoodies are £20.00 and both are available in S, M, L, XL and XXL. To order yours, simply add the size you require to your basket when registering online.

Join our Facebook event

Help us spread the word and join our Facebook event. You'll be able to share the link with your friends and show them what they're missing. With more pedals turning, we'll get closer to beating heart disease.
