Attention: Just reading this page means you are entering an elite group of our favourite people. By taking one of our highly-sought-after charity places for RideLondon 2019, you will totally transform the lives of at least six bike-bereft refugees – using only the almighty power of your legs!


How would you like to take part in the world's greatest festival of cycling, ride 100 miles on an Olympic course, and raise loadsa money for The Bike Project?

If your answer is HELL YEAH! then you need the RideLondon 100 on 4 August 2019.

Currently all our places are full but make sure you get in early next year!

What are you letting yourself in for?

RideLondon is a 100-mile bike 'race' through the (closed) city streets of London and the country lanes of Surrey. Happy days.

When does the fun begin?

RideLondon takes place on Sunday 4 August 2019. The training starts now.

What do we ask from you?

Our 10 VIPs raise a minimum £1,000 in sponsorship. The 12 non-VIPs (still special!) raise a minimum of £600 in sponsorship.

If you'd like an extra challenge, why not do it on a Brompton?! We can organise the loan of one for the race. 

Every £100 you raise means we can give another refugee their very own bike, as well as a helmet and lights so they can cycle safely in London.

Having a bike can save a refugee £1,000 per year in transport costs - remember when you got your first bike? It's a total life changer.

So spread your networks far and wide, ask your company for match funding, dig out your extended family tree, and get down on your hands and knees!

What support do we give you?

VIPs get a lovely package from Prudential:

All our fundraisers get not one, but two free bike services to use whenever you need them. Plus a super special Bike Project branded cycling jersey so you can proclaim your awesomeness to the cheering crowds - and, if you hit your fundraising target, you'll get a £40 gift voucher to spend at The Bike Project on any merchandise or accessories you might fancy.

Sounds good? Then let's go! Starting from the Olympic Park, you ride through central London to Hampton Court, past the London 2012 time trial finish line crossed by Sir Bradley Wiggins when he won gold. Enough inspiration? Good because you've got another 75 miles to go...

Into the Surrey countryside, with the huge climb of Leith Hill and the famous zig-zags of Box Hill. Then back to London along the Thames for a spectacular finish along Whitehall, under Admiralty Arch and down the Mall. Wave to the Queen, you're home!

Not feeling rich?

There's no entry fee to pay if you take one of our charity places. Quids in.

Missed out on the RideLondon ballot?

The public ballot might be closed, but no worries, we've still got saddles going spare. Get in touch before they get snaffled up.

Bike not up to scratch?

Use one of your free bike services and let our professional mechanics give your bike a complete overhaul so it's ready to race or check out our range of refurbished road bikes.

So saddle up and send us an email today – this is going to be epic!
