The 2015 route will be designed to celebrate the best cycling and iconic landcapes London has to offer. It will be suitable for those signing up for their first ‘sportive’ as well those training for Alpine challenges and further endurance challenges like Deloitte Ride Across Britain.
The 2015 event will be running over the weekend of the 16 – 17 May and will be once again be heading back to Lee Valley Athletics Centre for the start and finish of the 360° route. We are currently making final adjustments to the route and we will share this with you in good time to train for a few of the more ‘grippy’ sections. We will be using Ascot racecourse as our overnight basecamp. Day 1 will consist of approximately 100 miles and day 2, 85 miles.
To get a fair representation of what the route may resemble, please take a look below at the details from the 2014 Ride. More climbing than the 2012/13 events, but much more beautiful also. It proved to be the best weekend of cycling we’ve had. Looking for relentless improvement we hope to again create the biggest and best weekend of cycling in the sportive calendar.
