Getting There and Parking
The start and finish of the event will be at Peruvian Wharf in East London and we will have the overnight camp at Windsor Racecourse. You can be collected and dropped off at both locations and full details of timings and driving directions are below.
Peruvian Wharf: Start Day 1, Finish Day 2
Address: Peruvian Wharf, North Woolwich Road, London E16 2AT
Driving: The car park will be open on Saturday morning from 0630 until 1000. Drivers will be able to drop people off at the site in a designated drop off area. Those riders doing two days can leave their vehicle there from Saturday morning to Sunday afternoon. Cars are left at your own risk, however we will have security watching the vehicles throughout. The charge will be £10 per vehicle and this will need to be paid in cash on arrival. You will also be required to fill in a car pass which will be given to you on the day (stating your name and contact details) to be left on your dashboard for the duration of the event. The car park will close on Sunday at 7pm and all cars must be collected by then.
Train: The start site is right next to the West Silvertown DLR station. You are able to take folded and unfolded bikes on certain tube lines and a full map of what stations you can take your bike on can be found here. The closest you can take an unfolded bike to is Canning Town which is one stop away from West Silvertown and just 1 mile ride away. We recommend checking back with TFL before final travel to ensure you take account of any planned engineering works.
Cycling: You are of course more than welcome to cycle there with your bag and when you arrive you can quickly register and leave your bag with us for you to collect at the end of the day
