Take Part

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 help us beat heart and circulatory diseases. 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.

Your group can search for the team by team name or alternatively you will be sent a team link, via email, which you will need to send to all your teammates so that they can register and join you.
