Events and Challenges
However you do it, your support to Leukaemia & Myeloma Research UK will be worth your effort!
London to Brighton Bike Ride 2021
We have places!
Raise funds for Leukaemia & Myeloma Research UK by taking on a 54 mile cycle ride from London’s Clapham Common to Brighton’s Madeira Drive along with 4000 other riders.
This is an incredibly popular challenge that takes riders through Mitcham, Banstead and Haywards Heath, before the mile-long climb along Ditchling Beacon to the South Downs for a well-earned break, ahead of the final descent into Brighton.
The route is fully signed posted so that you can enjoy the spectacular views and countryside. There are water stops along the way, including one at the top of the famous Ditchling Beacon. You will be provided with a free lunch along the way.
Full mechanical support on route – there are mechanical stops on the way and also roaming mechanics, who if you need them, are just a call away.
The organisers offer you pre event support. You will also have access to the official London to Brighton 2022 Facebook Page.
Once you have completed the ride you will be awarded the London to Brighton Ride finishers medal!
