Event Summary

Event Overview

Hero Ride - Manchester to London

The call goes out to all cyclists and cycle clubs in the North West - join the gruelling Northern Flyer from Manchester to London and prove how tough you are while supporting Help for Heroes!

From the start point in bustling Manchester the route heads south through the beautiful Peak District, stopping overnight near the impressive Tutbury Castle, before we visit the National Memorial Arboretum – the UK’s Centre of Remembrance – to remember those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. 

Cycling with wounded servicemen and women, the route then continues along the quiet roads of Leicestershire, chocolate box villages of Northamptonshire and charming towns of Hertfordshire, before reaching Blackheath where we unite with a number of other Hero Rides from all over the country for the epic finish in London on 10 miles of closed roads.
