When and Where
Next year's Do it for Charity London to Brighton Cycle Ride will take place on 17th September 2017. We start on Clapham Common between 06:30 and 09:00 and we finish on Madeira Drive on the wonderful Brighton sea front.
How fit do I need to be?
We have thousands of runners taking part in our 5k and 10k runs every year – many of them for the first time! It is therefore perfectly achievable for people of all levels of fitness to take part in this event, but in order to maximise your enjoyment we do recommend you do some training. You can download our sample training plan now here and once you book your chosen charity will also be able to give you support too
Which charity can I cycle for?
You can cycle for any of the charities listed on our "Which Charity?" page or you can simply cycle for your own charity.
How much do I have to raise?
Your chosen charity will ask you to raise £150. This is easily achievable and both DoitforCharity and your chosen charity will be able to give you lots of help and fundraising ideas.
How much will it cost me?
We simply ask you to pay £45 on registration which covers everything including: the fully signed route, your race number, amazing buffet lunch, mechanical support two water stops and a shiny DoitforCharity medal to prove you have taken part!
What kit do I need to bring?
We recommend you have a well-serviced bike – it doesn't need to be carbon–framed or anything special but it should be comfortable and well maintained. As well as your bike it is essential you have a helmet. It's up to you whether you carry a bag with you but we recommend this is fixed to your bike (search for 'bike panniers' online) rather than worn on your back which can become very tiring.
Is there an age restriction?
You will need to be 16 or over but there is no upper age limit. However all participants of whatever age should ensure they are fit enough to take part in the event. If you are in any doubt please check with your doctor.
Is transport provided back to London at the end of the ride?
Bike and coach transport will be available back from Brighton to Clapham Common at an extra cost of £25 which can be booked upon registering or prior to the event.
Your bicycle will be securely transported back to the start point in Clapham Common where it will be returned to you upon arrival.
Local train services in Brighton will only permit a limited amount of bikes so we strongly advise you arrange to be picked up from Brighton or book our bike and coach transport (subject to availability).
