On 12th July 2015, Emily and I are setting off to cycle 20,000km from London to Cape Town in aid of World Bicycle Relief.

I’m inviting you, your friends and family members to join us on the first leg – our very own London to Brighton charity cycle ride.

Starting in Wandsworth, the ride will follow the iconic route on quiet country lanes before reaching Brighton just 100k later.

It’s a professionally-organised ride with a signed route, feed stations, electronic timing, first aid and mechanical support.

The event is open to riders of all abilities. Please don’t be put off by thinking you might be slow. Emily and I will be at the back as we’ll be carrying panniers full of all the gear we’ll need for the next 11 months on the road (tent, sleeping bags, cooking equipment etc). The only prerequisite is that your bike’s in good working order and that you wear a helmet.

London to Brighton Bike hire
We’ve done a deal with On Your Bike at London Bridge for London to Brighton bike hire.  You can hire a Trek road bike at a specially discounted rate. Bike hire starts from just £18. Get in touch with me for details.

The ride will culminate with a reception at a central-Brighton venue.

For more details and to enter, please visit http://london2capetown.org/route/london2brighton/
Make sure you use promotional code L2C2015 at checkout to get discounted entry (£35 vs £40).

The entry fee covers the costs of putting on the event and includes 5% to World Bicycle Relief. We’d really appreciate if you could fundraise over and above this but it’s not obligatory. (We’re aiming to raise £50k). Your £35 entry fee will be refunded if you raise £285 or more, which is enough to fund 3 bikes for people in rural communities.
