RideLondon-Essex 100

29 May 2022

Ridelondon is back!!!

The world’s greatest festival of cycling returns on Sunday 29 May 2022, with a new format, exciting new routes and a new partnership with Essex County Council.

The RideLondon-Essex 100 is a unique opportunity to ride 100 miles on traffic-free roads through the heart of London and neighbouring Essex. It will start and finish in the centre of the capital, with 60 miles of rolling roads through some of Essex’s most beautiful countryside and villages in between. The full route will be announced in early 2022.

We've secured 30 places on this sought after event following its highly anticipated return to the streets of London. They are first-come, first-served, so don’t miss your chance to take part in this new-look ride with a fundraising place from the charity that understands cyclists, Action Medical Research – your efforts in the saddle will help save and change children’s lives by funding urgently-needed medical research.

Once the first 10,000 entries are sold out, the remainder of the general entries will be available via a ballot, with places allocated by a random draw. Save the anguish of waiting to find out if you were successful and secure your entry with a charity place in the RideLondon-Essex 100 right now!

What's new in 2022?

As well as the 100-mile challenge, RideLondon will feature family-friendly cycle rides on traffic-free roads passing some of the capital’s most iconic landmarks. The event's full format and routes across London and Essex will be announced in due course.

Essex will host stages one and two of the new three-day road race, part of the UCI Women’s WorldTour, which will be held from 27 to 29 May, and is once again set to attract the world’s best teams and riders.

two ways to pay

Variety is the spice of life, so we offer two different payment options for those wishing to buy a charity place in the ride. There's the traditional fundraising option where we ask for a registration fee of just £30 (saving a whopping £59 than if you went direct), with a minimum fundraising target of £400.

Alternatively, if fundraising isn't for you, choose to self-fund and buy the place for a flat fee of £350.
