When is the London to Brighton Cycle 2023?

The London to Brighton Cycle 2023 takes place on Sunday 10 September.

London to Brighton Cycle route

The London to Brighton Cycle starts from Clapham Common in South London and ends on Brighton's beautiful seafront. After making your way out of London, you'll cycle through idyllic English countryside and along quiet country lanes. You'll cycle through pretty villages and towns such as Mitcham, Banstead and Haywards Heath before taking on Ditchling Beacon – a challenging mile long climb to the top of the South Downs where you will be rewarded with an incredible view. Once you've conquered the climb, it’s all downhill to the Brighton seafront and the finishing line.
