One of the toughest one day cycle events in the UK, the ULTRA challenges you to conquer the entire loop of London in one day.
Setting off early Saturday morning from Lee Valley, you will take in the famous London landmarks before leaving the urban cityscape behind you and venturing into the green fields and testing climbs of the North Wessex Downs.
Once through Windsor, it is into the Chilterns to conquer Kop Hill before winding your way back through Epping forest to celebrate your momentous achievement in a blaze of glory back at Lee Valley!

The ULTRA isn’t designed to be the fastest. It is the ultimate challenge of endurance and our chance to showcase the best city sights and surrounding countryside. Our minimum average speed for the ULTRA event is 15 miles per hour. This is to ensure you finish safely within the timeframes of the event.
