The Ride Around London event route has been designed by cycle tour veteran Andy Cook and is designed to be both challenging and rewarding. Novices beware of Box Hill, there is a reason it is such a famous hill! But at least it is early on in the ride and after that you shouldn't expect too many surprises.

Online registration closes in just under a week on Tuesday 20 September at 6pm, with limited amount of registration places available on the day. Nearly 800 riders are signed up already, and if the event reaches capacity before next Tuesday you will not be able to enter.
