When: 17 June 2018

Where: London to Brighton

The London to Brighton Bike Ride is back for 2018!

Join over 15,000 cyclists riding together to end heart disease. We don’t care if you come first or last – if you take part, then you’ll be a BHF champion.

The London to Brighton Bike Ride is the British Heart Foundation's flagship event covering 54 miles from Clapham Common to the Brighton Seafront.

Make friends with fellow riders as you pass through the Sussex countryside, conquering Turners Hill and Ditchling Beacon. Once you reach the finish line, you will be greeted with a loud applause and a celebratory party at our very own Beach Village.

With a handful of climbs, your pedalling will help power our life saving research. And every penny you raise will help the BHF cross our finish line faster.

Why Fundraise?

Heart disease is the UK's single biggest killer. This has got to stop. Through funding pioneering heart research, we are determined to put an end to the devastation heart disease causes. But we need your help to make that goal a reality. We rely on your fundraising to keep up our work - your registration fee only covers the cost of putting the event on - so please raise what you can, to help us keep more families together for longer.


Set Up a JustGiving Page

Everyone has a reason to take part, whether it is for a loved one, friend or colleague. Tell everyone about what inspires you.

The quickest and easiest way to do so is by setting up a JustGiving page. You can keep track of live donations and watch them start rolling. Share the page on all your social media channels and smash your fundraising target.
