If you are a cyclist and looking for an unforgettable challenge on the UK’s greatest two day cycle event, you’ve come to the right place!
Our 156.9 mile loop, which starts in London and quickly heads out to the beautiful surrounding countryside, offers a variety of options to challenge all levels of fitness and expertise.
Those who love multi-day rides and would prefer to split the distance across two action-packed days – 88.4 miles and then 68.5 miles – will find the Weekender is the perfect option. This also includes the perks of our midway Festival Basecamp which offers camping facilities, hot showers, bars, food and live music.
If you’re looking for something extra challenging and wish to attempt all 156.9 miles in on go, then our ULTRA is for you. This option, not to be taken lightly, is the same as cycling from Tower Bridge to Cardiff Bay! Just think of the sense of achievement when you complete the full loop of London and surrounding countryside. Hero status awaits at the finish line!
*Please note the 2022 start venue is now Lee Valley Showground

"A fantastically well organised event with a beautiful route to run. Very well marked and marshalled, so no chance of getting lost. There was a festival atmosphere at the finish were you could spend time celebrating your achievement."
- Darren S, 2021 Runner
"I loved the ride and the buzz of riding through the city in a big group at the beginning followed by the brutal (to me!) climbs out in the countryside. Massive thank you to everyone on the route that made this such an amazing experience!"
- David Arms, 2021 Rider
"The organisation of the Ultra bike ride was superb. Perfect signage, great food stops, friendly volunteers. Loved it."
- Ben Walsgrove, 2021 Rider
"I have to say, I was so impressed with the organisers. An impressive 6 aid stations filled with goodies galore to keep you fuelled and first aid tables with everything you might need. Absolutely amazing staff/volunteers at these stations that couldn’t do enough to help you. For me this was my first ever Ultra, and I would 100% recommend this event to everyone thinking about running one."
