Nightrider London is back for it’s 10th anniversary year! Once again, two routes will be available – a 100km and a 50kmride. Both are circular and start and finish at the iconic Lee Valley VeloPark. The route has been updated for 2019, with a a brand new 25km section in west London.
This fun filled charity cycle ride is about taking on the challenge and seeing the sights. It’s not a race and it’s not timed.
We have put as many of the landmarks of London in as we can, and you can expect to see some hidden treasures along the way! It really is a unique way to explore the capital city.
Full support, back up and regular break stops are provided throughout the night, and a well-earned breakfast and medal at the finish.
Choice of 100 miles, 57 or 28 miles
We are proud to be working with Dallaglio RugbyWorks to bring a brand new event to the South of England. With a full day of activities from sportives to racing, Dallaglio Track Fest is set to be a great day for cycling at the iconic Goodwood Motor Circuit.
On 8-9th June 2019, Dallaglio RugbyWorks has exclusive use of the famous Goodwood Motor Racing Circuit for an incredible Supercar track day on the 8th and cycling sportive on the 9th. Do one or both days, this special weekend has everything for the petrolhead and cycling fan.
UK Cycling Events will be running a fun-filled day of cycling on Sunday 9th June and you can book your tickets for the cycling day here. Not only will we be hosting a stunning sportive, but the track will be bustling with a family fun day and race programme all day. Three glorious sportive routes will take in the beautiful roads and landscapes in and around the South Downs National Park after completing a lap of the Goodwood Motor Circuit.
Riders taking part in the Epic route will be treated to stunning views over Duncton on the technical decent – a nice reward after the climb out of the Goodwood estate. A nice quick 40-miles or so follow with an undulating gradient but nothing too strenuous. This will give riders some time to enjoy the beautiful countryside.
Riders on both the Epic and Standard routes get the challenge of climbing Harvesting Lane as they make their way up Butser Hill. On a clear day, they will be rewarded with views over the Solent and Isle of Wight.
All three routes are lovely and will appeal to all riders, with the choice of taking on some challenging climbs or just stretching the legs to enjoy the scenery.
The Family Fun Day will see activities and challenges for all ages and abilities on the track and around the Motor Circuit grounds. The afternoon will see a full programme of racing on the circuit, with full details announced soon.
Track Fest will offer something for everyone as we raise awareness and funds for Dallaglio Rugbyworks. All ticket prices include a £5 donation to support the work of Dallaglio RugbyWorks. You can make an additional donation at the basket should you wish. Make sure you get the date in your diary and keep your eyes peeled for more details on the day’s programme coming soon. Interested in the Supercar Track Day check out www.dallagliorugbyworks.com for more information.
Ride for a reason and join our celebrity ambassador and TV presenter Davina McCall on this bike ride raising funds for sick babies and children. Davina will be there in person to set you off on your way, and then she will ride the route to try to catch you up! You might just manage to catch her at one of the well-stocked rest stops or at the hearty BBQ lunch served at the finish line which is in the grounds of the beautiful East Sussex National Hotel.
Davina’s Big Sussex Bike Ride offers something for every level of rider : New to cycling? Then sign up for the Cool 21-mile route or why not try a slightly more challenging classic 40-mile route. For those more experienced riders we offer the Champion route at 68 miles.

The Brewin Dolphin New Forest Summer Sportive takes you out to conquer the wonders of the New Forest, promising to be packed with wildlife and scenic views over the national park. You are sure to have a spectacular day.
You will cycle along the coastal route via Calshot, Lepe, and Exbury, passing through the gorgeous Lepe Country Park along the way. The beautiful village of Beaulieu is also on this route.
Short route riders will take on the climb to Hatchet pond then along to Brockenhurst to rejoin the rest of the pack. Epic and Standard riders head north west to Lyndhurst, passing the quaint forest railway station at Beaulieu road. After a quick glance at the bustling town we’ll push on up to Ashurst before tracking along the eastern edge of the forest.
From here we will head deeper in to the heart of the old royal hunting ground, eventually reaching the small hamlet of Fritham. At this point the Standard riders will carry on south towards Bolderwood, while Epic riders continue their journey north for a loop that winds its way in and out of the most northerly border of the forest. Heading south, the riders regroup just before passing under the A31, striking a definite course south towards the focal point of the ride – a spectacular stint through Ornamental Drive. It is here you will see the best the New Forest has to offer.

Prudential RideLondon: the world’s greatest festival of cycling
A true legacy of the 2012 Games
Developed by the Mayor of London and his agencies in 2013, Prudential RideLondon is the world’s greatest festival of cycling. The seventh edition will take place over the weekend of 3-4 August 2019.
While the Mayor and his agencies are the custodians of Prudential RideLondon, the event is managed by the London & Surrey Cycling Partnership (LSCP), a partnership between London Marathon Events Limited (owners and operators of the London Marathon since 1981) and SweetSpot Group Limited (operators of the Tour of Britain).
LSCP works with Transport for London (TfL) and London & Partners (the Mayor’s official promotional organisation) to coordinate the significant technical requirements for the event and work in partnership with London Boroughs, Surrey County Council , The Royal Parks , London Legacy Development Corporation and British Cycling , who are each integral to the delivery of the event.
