London – Brighton Bike Ride
Take on one of the most iconic cycle rides in the UK and raise money for Perennial!
The 54-mile route takes cyclists from Clapham Common through idyllic country lanes towards the finish line on Brighton’s Madeira Drive, along the bustling seafront.
The route passes through Mitcham, Carshalton, Chipstead, Turners Hill and Haywards Heath, before you tackle the daunting Ditchling Beacon and plunge down to the seafront in Brighton.
No previous experience is required but preparation for the event is highly recommended.
How fit do I need to be?
Hundreds of thousands of people take part in charity cycle rides every year – many of them for the first time. It’s therefore perfectly achievable for the ‘average’ person to take part in this event but in order to maximise your enjoyment you do need to train – and that means more than just a cycle ride around your local park! However, help is at hand in the form of the www.doitforcharity.com fitness pages where they can give you a sample training plan.
What kit will I need?
Taking part in a charity bike ride that involves over 50 miles of cycling means that it’s not only you that has to be in good shape, the bicycle you ride does too! As well as your bike it is essential you have a helmet and a pair of gloves.
