Event details

Leave the buzz of the city behind and join around 4,000 other cyclists for a 54 mile ride down to Brighton sea front.

Starting from Clapham Common in London, you will ride along idyllic country lanes through Mitcham, picturesque Carshalton, Chipstead, Banstead and Haywards Heath before taking on Ditchling Beacon – a mile long climb to the top of the South Downs! From here it's all downhill to the finish on the colourful and bustling Brighton seafront.

The ride is very well supported with route markers, water stops, an amazing buffet lunch and mechanics on hand. For an additional fee you can sign up to a coach and van service which will transport you and your bicycle from Brighton back to Clapham Common.

Whether you are an experienced rider or someone who is looking to get more into the sport, this is a great event to be a part of. You can even take part on a tandem bike with a friend or relative!

This is a very popular event and places will fill quickly so do make sure you book quickly.

Fundraising for the MS Trust

We understand that fundraising can sometimes be just as much of a challenge as the event itself, but our dedicated fundraising team will be there to support you every step of the way. We will be there to get you started with our brilliant fundraising pack and will be in regular contact with support, advice and ideas. 

As a MS Trust fundraiser you will also receive a free MS Trust branded t-shirt for you to wear as you train and during the event itself. 

We recommend that our fundraisers use Just Giving to collect sponsorship online. It is quick to set up and you can easily share your page with friends, family, and colleagues to reach your fundraising goals. Plus, everything is seamless. The money you raise, as well as Gift Aid, is sent straight to us as the MS Trust so that's one less thing to worry about! You can kickstart your fundraising on Just Giving here
