BHF London to Brighton – Ready to Ride?


Ready, get set, go – Take on the challenge of riding for The Loss Foundation in the BHF London to Brighton.

We’ve partnered with the British Heart Foundation to offer you the amazing opportunity to take on the famous London to Brighton Bike Ride on the 18th June 2023. The rider ballot to enter with The British Heart Foundation has now closed; however as a charity partner to the race, we still have spaces remaining (they’re limited, so register now).

Riders will kick off the 54-mile route at London’s Clapham Common, riding alongside 15,000 other cyclists to arrive at the finish line on Brighton Beach (most of the event takes place on closed roads).

BHF London to Brighton – Open for All

The London to Brighton Bike Ride 2023 is open to everyone over the age of 14 and of all skill levels – from those who are new to cycling to more experienced cyclists. The event is very achievable for families, groups of friends, and corporate teams. You can ride solo or tandem, on a push bike or ebike (if riding on an ebike, the motor must not exceed 250 watts; and assistance must cut out at 15.5 mph). 

Expect plenty of support along the way, with 15 stop off points, and a beachside event village at the finish line, ready for you to put your feet up for a well-deserved rest! Our team will also be here for you in the countdown to the big day (with plenty of fundraising tips and answers to any questions you may have).

  • Start – Clapham Common, London
  • Finish – Brighton Beach Front
